about me

I currently work as the Senior DevOps Engineer for a non-profit company. My work mostly focusing around Docker and Kubernetes on cloud-native platforms (GCP, AWS), and general automation (Ansible, Terraform). I also do quite a bit of custom coding for APIs and connectors, almost all in Python. I have previously also worked as a Linux/Unix Systems Administrator, a NOC Engineer in a datacenter, and in a far previous life, as a Research Director doing behavioral and statistical analyses in the video game and interactive media sector.

I am a huge Linux geek, and have been using Linux almost exclusively since the late 90s. I did my first install of Caldera Linux in 1997 and have been hooked ever since. I currently run a mix of distributions, including CentOS and Debian on server systems, and Arch on my desktop and laptop systems.

Besides geeking around in Linux, I like cyberpunk, anime, and just about anything Japanese. I have far too many hobbies and projects than I know what to do with. Good beer and good music make me happy.
