Howdy! I'm Ethan, a Software Developer who is passionate about designing and developing code to make this world a little more fun.
Some noteworthy things I've done:
- Built an AWS pipeline (DynamoDB, Lambda, Firehose, SQS) to handle big data at Amazon's scale
- Created a website (Django, Paypal) from scratch that eventually handled $15k+ in transactions
- Founded the Cryptocurrency Club at the University of Minnesota, built the club to 300 members, and gave technical talks to groups of 80+ students
From catching XSS vulnerabilities in teammates' CRs to finding APIs that are open to the internet, building secure systems is at the core of what I do.
Outside of work, I like to kitesurf (currently learning to foil) and hike (just getting into backpacking).
