I'm an art-making, slacklining, and boardsporting technobilly from the mountains of North Carolina who works with amazing peoplw and super powerful DevOps technologies.
By day: I fight for the user by resolving complex issues involving neat tools like Vault, Consul, Nomad, Packer, and Terraform. I write documentation and sometimes contribute useful features to the OSS projects as well.
By night: I cook, make visual art, create web stuff, build robots, and write poetry.
I'm a nerd, and am interested in a wide range of tech — these are some that I enjoy working with both personally and professionally:
I enjoy using open source technologies such as those by Mapbox to create beautiful and useful maps with public data.
Technologies like D3, Nodebox, and Processing are always exciting to me for creating chaotic imagery based on obscure data inputs.
Software robots have always had a special place in my titanium reinforced heart ♥ especially the socially awkward ones.
As a General class amateur radio operator (K4APP), I enjoy all kinds of signals — particularly the ones from space.
I enjoy classic systems administration, but also the topics of DevOps, workflows, automation, containers, and virtualization are all favorite topics too; It's also worth noting that I am am a FreeBSD fanatic for life, and as Kelsey Hightower mentions in his great HashiConf 2017 Keynote, I am one of those people from the 90s with a FreeBSD tattoo!
From mobile and web application development, to the tools that help make it more fun and efficient. I dig front end stuff, especially UI things.
