I found a passion for developing software, when it sparked both my ability to create, and my ability to problem solve. That was in early 2004, and I've been hooked ever since.

I enjoy thinking big and planning for scale. In my previous roles, I performed a lot of DevOps off the side of my desk, and switched into DevOps officially when I joined Giftbit in 2016. Since then, I automated the deployment process, greatly reducing the time and effort to deploy new code to production, while strengthening the security perimeter by moving towards Least Privilege permissions, and moving the infrastructure and access management into a Continuous Deployment pipeline.
