I am a software engineer, primarily interested in a mix of backend, data, and infrastructure engineering.
I work at Recursion on the Data Platforms team.
Basically, I build the infrastructure with which "data stuff" happens.
Prior to Recursion, I worked as a software engineer at Cohere, focusing on finetuning.
I write most of my code in Go, Python, and Terraform.
However, I'm always interested in learning new languages and technologies.
My full name is pronounced key-yawn mayr.
My first name is Arabic and means "being" or "existence".
I live in downtown Toronto with my spouse-to-be.
I'm of Black Jamaican and Gujarati Indian descent.
Naturally, I love spicy food.
I am gender non-conforming and use singular they pronouns.
I prefer not to make a big deal out of it.
When I'm not working, I'm usually hanging out with friends, reading technical content, exploring Wikipedia rabbit holes, trying not to burn dinner, taking pictures, hiking mountains, or attending tech meetups.
I also like music, tea, plants, and spreadsheets.
I do (very stereotypically) have a fancy keyboard and a fancy pen, but for purely ergonomic reasons. :)
