Tell us a bit about your background and your role at Distillery.

I am a passionate software developer with 14 years of experience. At Distillery, I’m an Architect and Senior .NET and Azure Tech Lead!

Given your work experience, what do you think are your biggest strengths that you bring to Distillery?

I think my biggest strength is my curiosity — It always pushes me to go deeper and keep learning from people and also about different technologies.

What attracted you to Distillery?

The opportunity to work for a great company like Distillery, in conjunction with the project I was interviewed for, drew me to Distillery!

The Distillery team made me feel comfortable and part of the group since day one, which is incredible. Working in an environment where you feel supported is priceless.

What are you learning right now?

It’s been a while since I wanted to dig into the IoT world, so I started studying to become a certified Microsoft Azure IoT Developer this year. It is a huge topic to learn and very exciting too!

Mac, Windows, or Linux?

This is an easy one — Windows of course!!! To be honest, I don’t really care about which platform, but I’ve been using Windows my whole life so I feel comfortable using it. I would be very unproductive using any other platform!
