I work where product meets engineering. I specialize in building products and solutions that create value for users and customers. I work with a great team at MongoDB, where we make tools to make developers happy.

- Compass: a beautiful GUI for MongoDB;
- MongoDB Shell: a new database shell with a modern user experience;
- MongoDB for VS Code: the best way to work with MongoDB inside your IDE.
