San Francisco, California, United States
Desktop Tech turned System Admin evolved into various Platform Engineering roles. Currently Infrastructure Engineer at Twilio.
I am community&self-taught software engineer with a background in desktop hardware and public speaking. I jumped into software and tools development after years of provisioning and troubleshooting linux machines at an enterprise scale.
Moving my way through various Platform Engineering Roles (including Platform Services, Cloud Services, Cloud Operations, Cloud Infrastructure), I've focus on AWS realm management, infrastructure and server monitoring, internal development tools and APIs, IAM policies, Security Group policies, networking and authentication.
Alongside development, I am one of the founding members of Twilio's diversity and inclusion initiative, run a group called "Diversity Advocates", and am the SF City Director for Lesbians Who Tech. I spend my non-engineering time traveling speaking about diversity and inclusion, battling brogrammer culture, impostor syndrome, and encouraging more underrepresented minorities in the field to pursue a future in STEM.
