I’m a tech guy in the RTP area of North Carolina. I am an automation engineer. Whether you call it Systems Administration, DevOps, or something else I believe strongly in the tenants of DevOps and Agile. To me that means continuous improvement, iteration, effective communications, cross-functional teams, collaborative learning, and the idea that we can achieve more together than individually. For my part, I automate all the things. I am deeply interested in autonomous infrastructure.
Aside from my technical interests, I enjoy grilling, sailing, music, and my family. I spent six years in the US Navy as an Engineering Laboratory Technician aboard the USS Springfield (SSN 761). I earned my Computer Engineering degree from the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk, Jayhawk, go KU!). I have been known to try my hand at building small boats, various wooden things, and brewing hard cider.
