Summary

I am engineering on Azure, my cloud of choice, as part of the Codebeez Python geeks. With Python on Azure I enjoy interactions between my roles as a Data/ML Engineer and Secure Application Developer. I create privacy aware big data architectures in Python and PySpark on infrastructure build with Azure DevOps and Terraform.
