My passion is to work on cutting-edge problems, that require the understanding of the entire stack, top to bottom. I enjoy working on technologies that require low-level knowledge of operating systems and the networking stack.

Areas of interest include: distributed databases, filesystems, operating systems, client/server architecture, and fault tolerance.

I want to join a team that strives to change the world.
