Summary

DevOps Extraordinaire liberating humans from menial tasks and automatable work leaving inspired and creative jobs to developers, rather than have them battle unreliable, inconsistent systems and tools.
Polyglot programmer with a passion for elegant, expressive code. A firm believer in the right tool for the job, data-first mentality, with a slight paranoia around all things security.
