You will find me to be someone who is passionate about technology and committed to doing things right. From a personal perspective, I enjoy sharing my top strengths from the StrengthFinder 2.0 assessment:
Restorative: I like to fix things
Achiever: I like to accomplish something every day
Competition: I like to measure myself against prior successes
Ideation: I like ideas and applying them to solve old problems
Learner: I love to learn
My passion for technology combined with my years of experience across the Infrastructure-Developer divide is ideal for projects involving the cloud.
I can help with cloud app development, designing solutions across IaaS and PaaS stacks, integration, identity, and cloud adoption strategy / roadmaps.
Everything I do is guided by my focus on security and automation.
Successful DevOps initiatives include a focus on the people, process and technology aspects.
I believe in complexity theory and its application to teams as a fundamental aspect
of a successful DevOps practice. Establishing the right attractors to achieve defined
goals across the quality/velocity/visibility/teamwork axis is key.
From a technology perspective, I love automation. I have spent time using powershell, VSTS
and other related technologies to build effective build/release pipelines.
My background extends to both the infrastructure and development worlds, which is ideal for devops.
Security is core to everything I do. Starting my career off as a developer
at a PCI compliant organization, I learned a lot about security theory
and building compliant applications. I followed this with time as a security architect
acting as the liason between the enterprise architecture group and security.
From operational security to security testing to security architecture, I can help
with your security needs.
