I’m a cloud technologist. I focus on data science, data engineering, data analytics, and data visualization in the cloud. I like to think about things like data pipelines, data storage, data lakes, data warehouses, analysis frameworks, and the like.
I started programming professionally with AppleScript, which is probably kind of weird, but it made sense at the time. I went from there to SQL and wrote tons of database code for years. More recently I moved into data science, mostly from the engineering and team leadership angles.
I code as much as I can. I’m a believer in engineering managers who code, and even CTOs who code, because I’ve been doing it that way for a long time. I think it works for me. These days I mostly code in Python, and I’m all about cloud.
Of course, the opinions stated here are my own, not those of my company (or previous companies, or other organizations I may be connected to).
