A bit about me:

Hey there! This website is primarily my platform to just jot down some quick notes and tidbits as I come along them.

I’ve been in IT for well over 10 years now. I’m a huge advocate for systems automation, scripting, and engineering approaches that should be repeatable, rather than one off solutions. I am a proponent of community involvement and returning contributions to all those I have learned from over the years.


Presently held certifications:

MCSE — Cloud Platform and Infrastructure

MCSE — Data Management and Analytics

VCP   — VMware Certified Professional 7 – Cloud Management and Automation


I’m always learning, reading, testing, or scripting something.
