New Relic

I joined NewRelic along with the rest of the Opsmatic. I helped start that ops-focused company after spending time building, breaking and evolving various systems at Urban Airship, SimpleGeo, and Flickr. When not wrasslin’ with computers, I’m likely involved in some combination of surfing, exploring new places with my special lady friend, enjoying the company of friends, watching sports, reading and playing guitar poorly. But my real passion is growing beards.
