I am an IT professional that specializes in the development of enterprise infrastructure solutions. With over 15 years in the datacenter working with teams on large projects including but not limited to storage, servers, networking and infrastructure software stacks. My current position involves working with vendors and customers to develop sustainable IT solutions for on-prem and hybrid cloud. I have worked deeply with and hold or have held certifications from a lot of the well-known names in the industry including but not limited to the following.
- Active Directory
- Dell EMC
I have worked directly on large scale datacenter migration and consolation projects. Virtualization projects including large scale VDI rollouts as well as developing operations process standards to align with ITIL based standards.
I love coding out routine tasks and creating “glue code” to help in day to day IT operations and provide solid customized solutions using coding languages including PowerShell, Python, Ansible, Jscript, and Chef. I enjoy working with operations teams to understand challenges and help relieve the stress of day to day IT operations.
Today I work a lot with On-Prem Kubernetes, Software Defined Datacenter and Automation type solutions to help support hybrid datacenters and enhance operational processes.
I also write blog entries for things that I am working on and quick solutions I think will be helpful for others out there.
Most importantly, I have a wife and two kids that I love to vacation with. I also play multiple instruments with my main instrument of choice being the 6-string acoustic guitar.
