I'm Wayne— a software engineer based in Portland, Oregon.

I have multiple years of experience with JavaScript (ES6), TypeScript, Node.js, Go, Ruby, React, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Docker and Infrastructure-as-Code deployments using AWS CloudFormation and Cloud Development Kit.

👉 Most recently I built Herald, an open source application that simplifies deployment of a full observability pipeline, condensing a complex multi-application deployment (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana, Fleet Server) into just a few simple steps.
