Hi There!


My name is Natalie. I'm a Software Engineer.

Currently working in the Infrastructure Team at Reddit in San Francisco.

If I have time I also enjoy working on building and automating various tools that help our development team be more productive and happy.

I'm passionate about helping make infrastructure more accessible. I love solving hard problems and all things containers. I enjoy being able to help engineers learn new ways to solve problems they are facing.


I guess... a fun fact about myself:

I consider myself one of not many engineers out there who worked on the highest number of CI/CD systems (because I really enjoy making things better in the Software Release Processes at any company I work)


Occasionally I blog or speak at the conferences. The main reason that I write, both blog posts and open source software, is to learn.

In my spare time, I like to hike or camp with my aussiedoodle Chai, stand-up paddle (SUP) across the Bay and bake.

Thank you for stopping by :)
