Customer-focused technology leader with significant experience in software development, site reliability engineering, infrastructure, operations, and leadership. Proven ability to successfully grow and lead individuals and global teams which deliver high-quality software and solutions against aggressive deadlines. Passionate about quality, people development, strong team culture, and building great teams. I currently lead PayPal's Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) organization. SRE creates the vision and strategic direction of PayPal’s infrastructure and operations as we scale for the next decade and beyond. Our emphasis is on security, availability, quality, enablement, modernization, and efficiency. SRE delivers a seamless, reliable, resilient and agile infrastructure for all applications to PayPal’s internal engineering community, Customer Service Operations, and 65+ offices. SRE collaborates with other technologists in PayPal to lead the way to a hybrid cloud vision and helps migrate workloads into the public cloud with seamless interoperability between private and public cloud. The ugly, challenging, messy (both technically and culturally) problems that have existed for a long time? I love to solve those!
