Hello & thanks for stopping by my blog! My name is Charles Cary. While I now live in the Bay Area, I was born in New York City. I'm a software engineer with a focus at the intersection of systems and machine learning. In the past, I worked at AWS, and I have been doing startups for the last few years. My current focus is Shoreline: a DevOps automation company. My passion for nature and hiking came to me when I moved out West. I blog about systems, machine learning, startups, and nature.
