Every sysadmin is equal parts scientist and commando.

I tune for performance, demand SSL connections, and gently encourage users to choose a strong password.

My recent roles have revolved around DevOps principles, facilitating the release engineering process and automating infrastructure and code deployments.

Automating, measuring and scaling are the cornerstones of my philosophy toward architecting systems and applications.
