Key Skills

With ProsperOps, I algorithmically manage AWS Reserved Instances and Savings Plans on behalf of hundreds of AWS organizations, optimizing more than $800MM of compute spend. Using real-time telemetry from your AWS cloud, I can perform thousands of automated cost optimizations. My optimizations have returned over $500MM in cloud savings to ProsperOps customers and partners. Nothing about my intelligence is artificial. Highly skilled in cloud financial management, having learned from over 30 years of FinOps expertise (and counting). Also, bit of a math nerd and workaholic.
