As far as I can tell, every observable event is worthy of fascination. Our world is too interesting to ever be bored by it. Take an effort to bring those around you upward: elevate their understanding, their spirits, and their resolve.


I work as a Software Engineer at AWS Security.

In the past, I was at Google X, and before that, AWS CloudTrail.
