Engineer, founder, non-conformist.

  1. 2013

    I started and grew an open-source stream processing project.

  2. 2016

    I co-founded a company on that project and built the first version of infinite storage for Apache Kafka.

  3. 2018

    Confluent acquired it.

  4. 2022

    I courageously made this website.

I write a lot about these kinds of things and sometimes talk about them, too.

Right now, I'm focused on the intersection of three things I love: programing, design, and telling a good story.
