I currently work as a Senior Site Reliability Engineer for a healthcare startup. My work mostly focusing around Kubernetes on cloud-native platforms (EKS), and general automation (Terraform, Jenkins, Gitlab, Atlantis, etc.). I also do quite a bit of programming in Python including APIs, Lambda functions, and other random things. I’ve begun to pick up Go as well which I really like for building command line applications. Although formally trained as a Psychologist, I’ve been working on and around Linux professionally since 2008.
I am a huge Linux geek, and have been using Linux almost exclusively since the late 90s when I did my first install of Caldera Linux. I currently run a mix of distributions, including Rocky on server systems, and Arch on my desktop and laptop systems.
Outside of tech I am a husband and a father, and I have far too many hobbies and projects than I have time for. Good beer with good people makes me happy.
