I lead and mentor a 25 person, globally distributed, Developer Relations team at Microsoft in Cloud Advocacy.

I have more than a decade of industry experience as a Software engineer with a strong open source focus. I'm a Node.js core contributor and elected member of the Node.js Technical Steering Committee. I was a compiler engineer on the Chrome V8 team, where I focused on performance improvements.

As an engineer in Google Cloud Developer Relations, I keynoted multiple conferences and wrote several blog posts with more than 100K views. My focus was on Node.js performance and large scale tooling for documentation.
