I have 3 lovely little girls and an awesome wife. Plenty to keep me busy, between the dance lessons, piano, and school functions. I can do up one heckuva ballet bun.

I've spent 15 years doing Microsoft infrastructure work, primarily focused around Active Directory, Terminal Services (yes "Citrix"), and VDI solutions. I've now moved into a DevOps position, focusing on Azure IAAS. Takin' it to the CLOUD!

I'm fortunate to have gotten to work in a couple of jobs that make folks jealous. I've gotten to help make beer and help make bikes! Of course, in neither did I actually make anything, but I worked there, so I helped somehow! I can't think of anything else that cool, except maybe motorcycles, so until Harley-Davidson comes a knockin', I'll be helping make bikes of the pedaling variety.

I've been a runner for the past few years, starting with local 5k's and eventually moving up to doing marathons. I've completed seven full marathons at this point, with more to come in the future. My personal best is a 3:34 PR at Indianapolis in 2013. I don't know when I'll get back in that kind of shape again, but someday, I hope.
