I’m a 36 year old Linux Systems Administrator who currently works for Nokia. I work in a DevOps role within Nokia supporting various public-facing products within the company. I work closely with the R&D groups on how to best architect and deploy their applications. My current focus is on automation using puppet and chef, and how to best integrate that with AWS. I also run a continuous integration environment within Nokia to automatically build, test, and deploy the developers applications to the dev and qa environments.
I’m the father of a fantastic three year old daughter. I love to travel. I’m learning to speak Italian, but I don’t practice as much as I should. I love photography, always have, but I also don’t take enough pictures anymore. I work hard to balance my work and my life. I want to make sure I spend quality time with my daughter everyday, and I want to expose her to all the wonderful things the world has to offer. I can’t very well do that while I’m working in an office far away
