Danville, Kentucky → Washington University in Saint Louis → San Francisco. I’ve worked at Flickr, OpenDNS, Square, Betable, and Slack. Matt Tanase and I founded DevStructure in 2010 and created the now-defunct Blueprint configuration management tool.
I served as advisor to Opsmatic which became New Relic Infrastructure. I am currently an advisor to Smallstep as well as to Boldstart Ventures. I like to work with founders and early employees to make their technology the best it can be and to bring it reliably to the most customers. I also serve on the customer advisory board for Amazon Web Services.
At present, I am a Principal Engineer and the Operations Architect at Slack where I have held various engineering leadership positions since 2014. I tolerate computers, like bicycles, am not a very good open-source maintainer, and live in San Francisco with my wife and kids.
