I’m a Systems Engineer and Python Developer based in Boise, Idaho. I help companies automate, scale, and reinforce their infrastructure and the build the teams that operate those systems. I believe in a driven, endless curiosity and continuous personal, and professional, growth – these qualities are integral in how I live my life and key aspects I look for when hiring.
These days I’m spending most of my time developing highly distributed infrastructure automation and management applications and mentoring. I’m passionate about Infrastructure Automation, Monitoring, High Availability, and Uptime, but my interests in other areas of Systems Engineering and software development are just as strong.
I have 20 years of experience in the Tech industry with a rather eclectic mix of Web Development, Telecommunications, Systems Engineering, DevOps, Infrastructure Automation, Consulting, and Management, working with the US Government, non-profits, startups, and everything in between. Over the last eight years I’ve had the opportunity to grow a FinTech SaaS startup’s systems from fewer than 50 employees and 10 servers to a global operation with 600 employees and thousands of on-prem servers in multiple data centers by recruiting, training, and leading a world class team of SysAdmins, Python Developers, and SREs.
If you share any of these interests, have challenging systems in need of help, or have an opportunity you think I may be interested in – feel free to contact me on social media or via email (below). I do enjoy meeting new people, discussing technologies, telling war stories, or just networking.
