Technical Architecture, Getting Started with Twilio


Senior Architect at Twilio focused on Scalability, High Availability and Fault Tolerance. I'm really interested in helping Twilio customers get to scale quickly and easily.


I am currently the Senior Architect at Twilio helping to grow the overall design of the Twilio systems internally. I have over 25 years of software industry experience with companies like Cisco, Yahoo, Silicon Graphics among others. I have a deep background in distributed systems and bringing research based technologies to production. I'm interested in helping companies get up and running quickly with technology and helping them scale as their organizations and problems scale.
