Software Dev/Engineer, Cloud Solutions Architect, etc.

I'm a CSDL at Cloudreach, I'm passionate about bringing our current developers and future leaders up through the challenges of becoming the best talent in the industry. I'm also fully customer-facing bringing forward-thinking, innovative, cloud-native, and best-of-breed technology to the masses! I specialize in DevOps, DecSecOps, CI/CD, Containerization (Docker and Kubernetes), AWS & Azure. I've architected, developed and implemented solutions for customers in most public clouds. I design solutions that are portable, security-first, and efficient.
I started focusing on AppDev & DevOps/Mgmt as my full time job in 2016 and became the Manager of Application Development managing a group that develops and supports a rapidly growing portfolio of software applications for the College of Engineering.
Puppet, Chef, Linux (RHEL and CentOS), Docker, OpenStack, VMware.
C#, Ruby on Rails, PHP/Laravel, Bash, Powershell
In 2008 I chose a more technical management path and I eventually lead a team that oversaw all aspects of IT within the College of Engineering, with a very large fed&gov research focus. In 2015 and 2016 I co-lead a project that took on operations of several support groups: basically building consolidated service management and service delivery for those respective areas under my supervision. Around 25000 users and 12000 endpoints. I managed full stack enterprise services for these departments and centers like bare metal, networking, endpoints. My org was responsible for most tangible IT services used by the entire college of engineering. I was always a very hands on technical manager during this time due to budget constraints on state dime, and also a passion to get my hands dirty and work with researchers on groundbreaking ideas and tech. I got to co-author some research work, taught and took graduate courses as well. A lot to do & manage with minimal resources, but hustle is free! I really enjoyed my time moving up the ranks in a public institution... I met a lot of great people, learned a lot about how to be creative and efficient.
I parlayed a really great student tech part-time job into my first full time gig in 2004. I started managing the group I worked for as a student, responsible for the student computer labs and classrooms at OSU. Pretty much all of them! All the resourcing, hiring, staffing, and IT operations for the learning environmentsunder my supervision. The technical side (AD, networking, endpoint management, etc) was also under my pervue. At one point I managed 120 students and had 2400 computer lab seats across multiple campuses!
