Linux Administrator with 5 years experience
I am seasoned enough to know to acknowledge when I do not know something, or do not have the answer.
There is never “one way” to do something, and no matter how a problem is solved, there is always a better solution.
Enjoy challenges and learning. I will not charge for learning general technologies that have application beyond a contracted project.
I believe in the power of the web. I believe in the power of cloud computing, and SaaS.
Willing to do oncall 24x7 immediate availability.
