Being part of a Premier AWS Consulting Partner, he provides architectural and operational support and shares his experiences along the way. He is also an AWS Authorized Instructor and gives AWS Classroom Training at The Campus.

You can find his blogpost on the Cloudar blog, see him participating on GitHub (maybe your CloudFormation Stack uses code he wrote), or run into him in an online community like the AWS Developers Slack.

He has a broad interest in serverless, automation and enabling builders. Currently, he counts CloudFormation, Lambda, KMS, CloudFront, and Lambda@Edge among his favorite services. Still, he has a soft spot for everything related to operational tasks, like Systems Manager.
