      A seasoned software development professional with over 10 years of experience in technical leadership and designing large-scale distributed systems. My expertise includes implementing virtualization, cloud supply channel distribution, and decentralized digital ledger projects for companies such as OpenVZ, Parallels Business Automation, Ingram Micro CloudBlue Connect, and Chainstack. My focus on infrastructure and automation has led to a proven track record of delivering exceptional results.

      I specialize in transforming business requirements into software solutions from scratch, and I am equally comfortable working with legacy systems. My expertise lies heavily in distributed systems, with a focus on cloud-native and SRE/DevOps methodologies. I prioritize toil elimination, and my technology stack includes Python (Flask/Django/Postgres), Go, Kubeflow, and MongoDB. I have a particular affinity for Kubernetes, GCP/Azure, HashiCorp Terraform, and advanced Prometheus/Grafana usage
