A curious and diligent software engineer seeking to apply machine learning techniques to mobile applications and systems reliability.
Chief Architect, FocusVision, 2016
Maintain and improve service reliability through automation and effective systems support. I play a key role in reducing incident time-to-resolution, cognitive load, and human error by introducing more efficient operational procedures. I’m able to increase the accuracy and rate of service failure detection through the continuous reduction of signal:noise ratios in service monitoring systems.
Introduced self-healing components that supported a positive increase in service uptime and reliability – which significantly reduced the toil associated with being on-call. Focused on a breadth of areas related to systems infrastructure, deployment, security, and testing. Developed tools that enabled the business and its customers, increasing their ability to self-serve and remain productive while reducing the costs associated with knowledge sinks.
As a full-stack engineer, I used agile, test-driven approaches to develop stable APIs and feature-rich applications. I made large contributions to the design, implementation, security, automation, testing, and elimination of bugs in our system stack (from development to deployment).
I combined accuracy, clarity, and brevity to curate technical documentation that was actionable, realistic, and organized. Having been in the trenches of survey programming, I authored and maintained an entire end-to-end guide on how to best work with the technology.
Developed dynamic, interactive web applications to collect data across millions of respondents. Carefully implemented the logic and desired behavior that turned questionnaires into data collecting systems that were cross-browser, cross-device, ADA approved, and secure.
During my senior year in college and in partnership with the Nation Sciece Foundation, I developed FALT (Fresno Audiovisual Lexicon Tool) – a system to perform lexical analysis on the similarities of phonemic and visemic communication.
Provided first class technical support to the entire campus.
