I have a passion for security and distributed systems and their application to real world problems. As a co-founder and CTO of HashiCorp, I bring both those interests into the world of DevOps tooling. As a former practitioner and proponent of open source software, I have helped design and implement the HashiCorp products to solve end user problems that I experienced first hand, while applying the state of the art from academic research. I currently lead the R&D teams at HashiCorp.
