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), though I also do quite a bit of Ansible and Terraform as well as general SysAdmin type tasks. 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 was 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 am a huge privacy advocate. I don’t have a Facebook, a Twitter, a LinkedIn, or an Instagram account. I have migrated most everything off of Google, and currently use ProtonMail for my email. I self-host just about everything I can, hate the DMCA, and 100% support the right-to-repair.
I like cyberpunk, anime, and just about anything Japanese. I own too many mechanical keyboards, and have an unhealthly love for pixel art. Good beer and good music make me happy.
