Systems Architect

Greta in a nutshell

I am a software engineer, cellist, triathlete, and climber.

I have spent most of my life as a cellist, earning various degrees in the field and contributing to my local community through teaching and performing.

Currently, I am most interested in the world of computer programming and systems architecture. I enjoy working with C#, Python, and Javascript, as well as AWS services and Linux. I would also like to learn more about OpenStack, blockchain, and information security.


Since moving to beautiful Boulder Colorado, I have become quite active in the outdoor community.

I completed the Ironman Boulder 140.6, 2019 and the Ironman Boulder 70.3 in 2017. I have also biked over the Alps in Switzerland.

I love to climb, trail run, hike, snowboard, swim, and sip some coffee in a hammock.

Clone of a standard ICMP echo tool written in C#. Replicates combination of command prompt and linux. This project demonstrates a working understanding of networking fundamentals, object oriented programming, and command prompt/bash.

Coursework: C#

Github page

I recently took several online courses related to C#. These exercises demonstrate a basic functional ability to use classes, constructors, inheritance, polymorphism, interfaces, and delegates.

AWS Skills

All of my personal websites are hosted on an linux EC2 instance using NGINX. Before switching to NGINX I used Apache. I have experimented with various AWS services in the process of studying for the AWS solutions architect exam. My work with systems architecture started as a side interest and has evolved into skills I am continually working to improve and expand upon.
