Summary

I am engineering on Azure, my cloud of choice, as part of the Codebeez Python geeks. With Python on Azure I apply myself as an AI Engineer, Secure Developer and Solution Architect. I create privacy aware big data architectures in Python and PySpark on infrastructure build with Azure DevOps and Terraform.

Experience

Knowledge Ambassador Apr 2020 - present
