Hi there. My name is Sam and I use this blog to (mostly) write step-by-step walkthroughs on topics ranging from serverless blogging to buying a phone plan abroad. I like to learn how to do things, write down what I learned, and share those notes here.

I’m an Austinite, but I left my hometown in 2019 to move to Lisbon, Portugal and help open Cloudflare’s office here. We’re hiring!

I’m also the Director of Product at Cloudflare for our Zero Trust products. The Cloudflare Zero Trust products help teams of any size stay safe without slowing them down.

I’m probably busy right now using a spreadsheet for a hobby project that doesn’t need one. Or walking a dog we named after the second-worst highway in Austin, Mopac.
