I am an accomplished Systems Administrator with over 7 years professional experience building infrastructure and platforms for small web hosts, the enterprise data center and the cloud. My primary expertise are Linux systems, open source software, and cloud platforms.
I began my career as a traditional hepdesk engineer but saw my interests shift towards the intersection of systems and development - now what people refer to as DevOps. My knowledge of programming languages and systems administration allows me to integrate and automate much of my work.
Here is a brief sampling of skills and technologies I am currently (2012) working with:
Linux - RHEL, CentOS, Ubuntu, Solaris and FreeBSD
Monitoring - Nagios, Munin, Cacti, Monit
Management - Chef, Puppet, Git, Subversion
Platforms - AWS, Rackspace, Slicehost, Linode, VMware ESX, Heroku, phpFog
Frameworks - Rails, Twisted, Catalyst
Lanaguages - Python, Perl
