About Me

With over 15 years of experience as a Software Engineer, including AI engineering, I've spent the last 8 years focused on developing cloud-native applications. I have a strong background in cloud, infrastructure, data-intensive applications, applied machine learning, and AI engineering. I excel in cross-functional teams and apply a DevSecOps mindset. I'm seeking a professional environment where I can contribute as both a developer and a team player, leveraging my expertise in microservices, architecture, technical leadership, and effective collaboration.
