We’re excited to present Dave Heebner as the newest Senior Operations Engineer on the team!
Although he’s here to help the operations team, his pastimes outside of the office are much more interesting. You’ll usually find him feeding or walking the dog (although it’s unclear as to how many times he feeds his pet), hanging out with his wife and quoting Monty Python whenever he drives on Larch St. in Philly.
As the only person in the world who would say his perfect food day is “not having to eat,” we figure it’s because he’d much rather spend his time daydreaming about his adventures with Steve McQueen. For Dave, the best nourishment comes from riding motorcycles and driving '68 Mustang fastbacks through the streets of any European town.
Dave also recently attended Amazon’s AWS re:Invent conference in New York City, where he had the unique opportunity to learn about deploying servers using CloudFormation and see the Dalai Lama, who just happened to be in a room right down the hall. Win-win.
Although his childhood dream was to become a truck driver, we’re happy he took the engineering route so he could work with us. And besides, we won’t stop him from regularly enjoying a Big Gulp®.
Welcome to the team, Dave!
