With my extensive experience in developer relations, community management, and technical program management, as well as my proficiency in various open-source technologies, I am confident that I would be an excellent fit for this role.

As a Developer Advocate at Temporal, my main responsibility was to help the developer community do better work faster and more efficiently. In this role, I was responsible for creating technical content, managing social media channels, driving developer engagement through public speaking engagements, and building relationships with key stakeholders.

Before Temporal, I worked as a Technical Evangelist at Cockroach Labs. I created and executed technical content strategies, managed social media channels, and drove developer engagement through public speaking engagements. Additionally, as a Developer Advocate at Equinix Metal, I managed the company's developer relations program, drove the adoption of the company's IaaS solutions, and increased developer engagement through public speaking events and online communities.

My experience at Red Hat, where I worked in various technical roles, has given me a deep understanding of open-source technologies such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Fedora, OpenStack, Ansible, Python, and Git, as well as experience in DevOps, containers, and cloud services. As a Technical Program Manager, I led cross-functional teams to deliver complex technical projects, while as a Software Engineer, I worked on developing solutions for various customer requirements. Additionally, as a Technical Account Manager and Technical Support Engineer, I managed customer relationships, provided technical support, and ensured customer satisfaction.

I am excited to bring my technical expertise, community management, and developer relations experience to your company and contribute to its growth and success.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

All the best,
