About Me

Currently employed by Mediotype in the role of Senior Systems & Software Engineer, I spend my time focused on various software, infrastructure and devops projects for clients in the Magento Commerce B2C and B2B online retail space. Prior to joining Mediotype, I worked at Classy Llama in various engineering and leadership roles for a period of 9+ years with a strong Magento focus.

You will find I am passionate about infrastructure as code, immutable design patterns, automation and zero-downtime system architecture, being experienced with Terraform, Ansible, AWS, GCP (Google Cloud) and Kubernetes as well as highly-available dedicated clusters, having run Magento at scale on both types of environments for both small and large merchants alike.

A long-time macOS user with a love for solving technical challenges, I enjoy reading merely for the sake of learning at times, I love the outdoors and hiking in mountainous terrain, and enjoy sipping a good espresso, stout or pinot.

My expertise with software languages is centered largely around PHP, C, C++, Ruby, Bash, JavaScript, HTML, CSS and Terraform HCL. I plan on someday adding Python and Go to the mix. I’m also fairly well versed in Juniper EX-series configuration and the pfSense Firewall platform.
