2020 - Current

Cloud-Native MLOps, Data Ops & DevOps Engineer

After several years of working on various projects as a Full Stack software engineer, it became evident that data was the next frontier. After passing the AWS Solutions architect exam I decided that it was time to focus on the field of Data Science from a Cloud-Native perspective. While I find Data Science interesting my background as an AWS Solutions Architect and Python Developer prepared well to manage the flow and migration of data, leaving me little choice but to pursue roles in MLOps and Data Ops.
