Municipal Property Assessment Corporation, Ontario's property expert.

Cloud Operations Analyst

January 2020 - Present

As a Cloud Operations Analyst at Municipal Property Assessment Corporation's cloud operations team, I worked with AWS IAM, EC2, Secrets Manager, Lex, SQS, S3, Lambda, CloudWatch to automate operations workflows such as standardizing EC2 instance tags.

By creating Data Dog HTTP checks, I've contributed to the team's visibility of application and service availability.

To enhance efficency of file restores in AWS S3, I created a web application using Bootstrap, React, Python Sanic, and AWS Boto3 SDK to allow support staff to perform on demand file restoration. This reduced customer turn around time from a few days to just 15 minutes.

Working with the security team, I've created an AWS Lambda script in python that automated the creation of VPC traffic mirroring sessions.

I've recently worked on creating the team's assistant chatbot using AWS Lex, providing users with information on the on call personnel.

DevOps Engineer (Coop)

January 2019 - August 2019

As a DevOps engineer at Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan's investment securities cloud team, I worked with AWS CloudFormation templates and PowerShell scripts to automate the provisioning developer virtual machines in the cloud and the installation of softwares.

To promote self-service among teams, I integrated the CloudFormation template with AWS Service Catalog such that teams can provision virtual machine instances themselves.

I've also written a PowerShell script that assisted developers in migrating from Oracle JDK to Amazon Corretto Open JDK and JRE.

To standardize the deployment of Amazon Simple System Manager across AWS EC2 instances and migrated data center virtual machines, I wrote a python script using AWS Boto3 SDK to detect and update Simple System Manager clients and performed manual installation for instances that did not have the manager installed on Linux and Windows instances.

May 2018 - August 2018

On their backend, I worked with PHP codeigniter framework and MySQL database to enable API support for their next generation mobile application tested with PHPUnit.

On the front end, I developed new features as such deep linking for their next generation mobile application for iOS and Android using React-Native, Axios, and Redux library to enable corporate employees to track and engage in fitness activities, reduce health risks, and be mindful in living healthier lives!

Hatch Canada, a company that makes coding fun for kids in an inclusive community

Admin Coach

April 2018 - December 2018

As an admin coach, I perform all the duties of a coach. In addition, I organized the delivery of lessons delivered to students. I communicate with parents on a frequent basis on the progress of their child and work collaboratively to address behavioral issues.


January 2017 - December 2018

I assisted children ages 7 - 17 in their self-expression through computer generated visual arts. In the process, they learn programming concepts such as loops, conditionals, variables, and object oriented programming. These tools help them instruct the computer to realize their imagination. As a result, children are motivated and feel a sense of empowerment in creating their master piece.
