I’m a Principal Engineer at HashiCorp where I work on Terraform, an open-source tool that provides a consistent infrastructure-as-code workflow to manage any of service by codifying APIs into declarative configuration files. I call the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota my home.
I’m a big advocate of distributed teams and open source, having spent the majority of my career as a 100% remote employee and at other top tier open source companies such as Red Hat. As a public speaker I’ve had the privilege of speaking at major conferences as close as the American Midwest and as far as Kyoto, Japan.
Outside of programming I love backpacking, ice hockey, and fulfilling my responsibility as a native Minnesotan to making pointless connections to Minnesota at every opportunity.
