I am a seasoned security engineering leader boasting an impressive track record in the technology industry. My expertise stretches across various areas such as cloud security, infra security, engineering leadership, and blockchain technologies. Currently, I lead Coinbase's cloud security efforts, dedicated to crafting strategies and solutions that enhance the platform's security, thereby ensuring we maintain our position as the most secure crypto platform in the world.

Over the span of my dynamic career, I have made considerable contributions to the field of software engineering. I have had the privilege of working with renowned companies and have spearheaded innovative projects. Among my accomplishments, I am proud to have been one of the early engineers who developed the SMS endpoint for AWS SNS, and I also led Teradata's effort to launch on the Google Cloud Platform.

At Coinbase, my current role entails managing a proficient team of security engineers. I regularly conduct security audits to identify vulnerabilities and potential threats, and oversee the implementation of advanced security technologies like firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and SIEM.

Being a passionate advocate for staying abreast of the latest advancements in cloud technology, I not only drive innovation within my own work but also find immense satisfaction in sharing my knowledge and expertise with others. My focus on thought leadership and collaboration positions me well to make a meaningful impact on the technology community and beyond.
