Cloud Systems Developer Leader

Cloudreach

I'm a CSDL at Cloudreach. I'm passionate about bringing our current developers and future leaders up through the challenges of leveling up in this growing industry. I'm also fully utilized and customer-facing bringing forward-thinking, innovative, cloud-native, and best-of-breed technology to the masses! I specialize in DevOps practices, security, CI/CD, Containerization (Docker and Kubernetes), AWS & Azure. I've architected, developed and implemented solutions for customers in most public clouds during my Cloudreach tenure and prior in my own personal cloud consulting initiatives. I design solutions that are portable, security-first, and efficient. Our future is cloud-agnostic, serverless, and security by default, and I am excited every day to design & build solutions to pave the way to get there.

Infrastructure as Code (CloudFormation, Terraform, ARM Templates), Immutable software and infrastructure, containerization (Kubernetes, Docker, ECS, EKS, AKS, OpenShift), DevOps, DevSecOps, automation (Puppet, Chef, Ansible) and CI/CD (Jenkins, Travis, Bamboo, CircleCI).
