Alex is a full-stack software developer with the Orchestration and Core Data team at ESnet. His primary focus is on improving the various orchestration workflow processes used by ESnet's Network Services team, as well as reliability, ease-of-use and deployment of the orchestration application stack. His main programming skillset is centered around Python for backend technologies and javascript/React for frontend, but he is interested in Rust and its potential application within the networking stack.

He previously worked at Spectrum as a network automation software developer, automating the deployment of Fortinet virtual firewall VMs using Cisco's Network Services Orchestrator (NSO), yang, and python. He was a contractor for ESnet, working with those technologies before becoming a full-time employee.
