Hello! I am Caesar Kabalan, living in Phoenix, Arizona. I’m currently a senior cloud engineer architecting, building, and leading the technical direction of Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure for a large global manufacturing organization. I’m also the primary subject matter expert and escalation point for all things related to AWS, Azure, cloud security, cloud networking, cloud development, cloud compliance, cost optimization, and application resiliency.

I’ve been in a number of roles, mostly infrastructure-related and developer-adjacent. I enjoy using my 20 years of programming experience to improve the technology environments I operate, build, and maintain. I’m passionate about finding the right way to implement any technology I’m working with. I consistently elevate teams that I work with by implementing industry best practices and researching industry trends which can improve our tools and processes.

In my spare time I enjoy playing, tweaking, and restoring late 1970s solid-state pinball machines.
