Linux and Opensource Guru by night:
If you can't solve it with opensource software then contact me and I will help you figure out how.
DevOps Mater by day:
I do my best to make my customers experiences with the products as painless as possible. The best way I have found to do that is to use OpenSource Tools meshed together with scripts. This isn't to say I don't have to use some Closed Source Stuff occasionally but it's not where my heart truly is.
I have become such a DevOps promoter I decided I needed to create a whole blog and podcast about it at http://devopsmastery.com I am trying to help everyone go from DevOps Novice to DevOps Master. The Blog and Podcast are in sync so if you don't want to read what I have to say you can listen to it.
Check out my site http://linuxinstall.net for our podcast about Linux and how my co-hosts and I use it. I have written some older CTO-Briefs on how SysAdmins/DevOps people really think.
I currently work at Sherwin Williams. We are a company in transition. Steadily migrating away from our old ways to new modern and more efficient DevOps focused future.
