Professional Bio

As a Senior Devops Engineer at FullStack with more than 22 years of Architecture experience and Operational excellence in technology, I love bringing systems integration, security, automation and deployments to life. My cloud experience stems heavily in both AWS and Azure, with several engagements in GCP Cloud as well. I have migrated many systems from Heroku, Softlayer, Cloud platforms, and on-prem solutions into many operationally sound, secure, and well-architected cloud environments. Using best practices, security practices, and well-architected approaches in the realm of both Devops and SRE (Site Reliability) is how I have honed my skills and knowledge over the years. Working with both large Fortune 500 companies and also smaller entities has taught me much over the years, including that the requirements can change in the blink of an eye and so can the needs of clients. I’ve practiced the ability to adapt and learn quickly to requirements and challenges but also with the ability to utilize my experience to give great guidance to clients and customers and to recognize their needs. New technologies that i’ve been heavily invested in terms of time recently are Kubernetes and Serverless environments with a large focus on utilizing new security assessment tools such as Sysdig, AWS SecurityHub, and Azure Security Center.
