An IT nerd who struggles with doing the right thing and work/life balance. Doing DevOps before it was called DevOps. We called it working effectively.

Built, automated, re-built, performed systems integration, grew infrastructure, os, middleware, and sometimes code for several Fortune 500 web-based products. Built and documented to be fast and to endure, so that efficient people - including myself - can benefit and build even bigger solutions.

I work cross-platform which helps me get ideas from all products and solutions, although I tend to lean towards the Microsoft stack.

A fan of the right solution for the right problem, and not a fan of fanboys.

Standards, documentation, DuckDuckGo, StackExchange, a willingness to break things, then learn from my own and others mistakes.
