I have been working with linux systems starting with Slackware back in 1994. I road the rocket of the early 2000's dotcom boom and came out alive and well armed to tackle anything that came my way. I am fluent with AWS, RackSpace, VMWare and many other cloud environments. I deploy systems with Chef or Puppet, keep source code in GitHub and work equally well on a team or solo. I have no problem with simple requests like "My server is dead" or complex requests like "Please build a scalable, load balanced, fully redundant server suite to house my Software as a Service" app. I'm happy to provide a resume on request.

I have over fifteen years experience in linux systems administration and development, having managed large environments composed of many thousands of systems. I believe I bring with me a valuable perspective on how to provide solutions for efficiently managing extremely large, and distributed environments without scaling headcount. Some of my accomplishments include having built site reliability/network operations centers from the ground up, from the development of the fault and performance management systems to the management of the staff. I have built up and administered large scale email infrastructures which would send and receive millions of emails daily. I have managed datacenter migration projects consisting of thousands of servers running live services. I have extensive experience in the online gaming industry, focusing on adminsitration, server engineering, and DevOps. I have even worked in a creative capacity as a writer and creative designer in the past, having co-created the MegaTokyo™ intellectual properties. Given the variety of roles I've had in my career, I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades. What I enjoy most is being able to provide value to the organizations that I am able to support, regardless of what role that places me in at the time.

After a few years of working as a software engineer, I developed an interest in the concept of code quality - and the ability to place better guarantees on the work coming out of the development team using automated unit testing. As an individual, I can demonstrate that my code is testable, and executes given functional requirements within certain parameters across different platforms and conditions. As a team, existing and introduced bugs can be readily identified and corrected much more efficiently, and ensure that corrected behaviour remains in place for future releases. When mixed with a bit of agile development exposure, I found myself in the world of TDD, BDD, Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment, not to mention the opportunity to use some cool technologies like TeamCity, Selenium, and even some physical red/green build lights. Commit/build issues that previously took a day or more to find could now be discovered and fixed much more efficiently, before the developer had moved on from the code, and before anyone else got a hold of the broken build! I believe that agile development methodologies, combined with continuous integration and testing strategies assisted us in achieving these goals. Well-defined functionality and architecture supported by a thorough testing framework, both automated and human-based, helps us to get high-quality products out the door.
Learn something every day - that is what drives me. Although my professional experience is only 3-4 years in the IT branch, I have already proven myself to be amongst the best. Working for international corporations, and helping critical customers (governments, banks etc.), I have taught myself to discipline, respect for given deadlines, perfectionism, as well as many technical skills: Linux server administration Windows server administration MySQL administration and enhancement Shell scripting C programming
