Scala Architect, Data Engineer, Tech Community Organizer
I am an architect, engineer, teacher and mentor. I'm a Principal Software Engineer at Lightbend (formerly Typesafe), currently working on the Lightbend Platform and Pipelines teams. I'm an Open Source Software contributor currently specializing in Apache Kafka and its ecosystem.
My current specialization is in building Streaming Data Platforms and Distributed Systems using technologies such as Scala, Spark, Kafka, and Akka. See my GitHub for more details. I've been invited to speak at a variety of Software Development and Big Data conferences around the world including Kafka Summit, Strata, Reactive Conf, DataEngConf, and Scale By the Bay.
