I've been officially in the IT industry since 1999 but a geek all of my life. Today I enjoy contributing to the design, deployment and maintenance of large scale, SoftLayer cloud infrastructures based on VMware, Linux and Windows. Presently I am working on a pilot program for VMware's Photon Platform. This role has provdied a wealth of knowledge and satisfaction while partnering with VMware's experts to create an infrastructure that truely enables cloud scale. In the past I have performed roles in various sectors including public, government and private entities. This work has ranged from devops to production including everything from embedded platforms all the way to big iron mainframe and supercomputer architectures. When I'm not working I'm tinkering. It's my passion. Maybe the polite way of saying it is an obsession. In any event, I love what I do.
