With nearly 30 years in the IT field, I have spent most of my time as a developer and architect, always moving forward with an eye to security, performance, and continuous improvement. To this end I have earned several cloud and cyber-security certifications. I have been an administrator for UNIX and Microsoft Windows networks, as well as a database administrator for Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL and Microsoft SQL Server. I have even been part owner of a Certificate Authority and helped with the day to day operations, ranging from backups to technical support. For the last 23 years, my primary focus has been on development and architecture.
