I am a creative, goal oriented individual who strives for a challenge in life. My career began in the Aerospace industry working for contractors at NASA Ames Research Center. For 5 years I worked on the design and analysis of aerospace systems including the Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle, Mars Science Laboratory, and technology development to support future human scale Mars missions.
My career path changed a few years ago when I got into the world of business intelligence and big data. This new direction has brought me to work at Netflix as a Senior Data Engineer developing ETL processes and software utilities for exploring big data. My work makes data available for making actionable decisions and allows decision makers to effectively explore and understand the user experience.
I have been recognized by management as being confident in my abilities while constantly striving to learn and improve myself and team. I am self motivated when presented with a challenge and believe in the benefit of working in highly motivated cross-functional teams to concurrently engineer complex systems.
I believe that we never stop learning and have employed that philosophy in my work using opportunities to learn a new process or tool when presented with the chance. This thinking has brought me broad experience in aerospace and business intelligence in addition to software tool development in Python, C++, and C.
