I have been professionally involved with IT companies of various sizes for over 10 years, and have extensive knowledge in backend development and working knowledge of server administration and management.

I would like to work in an environment which is ever changing, keeping in pace with leading edge technologies and products. My scripting and programming knowledge also enables the automation of many tasks to reduce workloads in both the technical and non-technical departments within a company. I have found a passion with Infrastructure as Code blending together my love of tech hardware with the programming skills to create reproducible environments to better support the business as needed.

Working fast and accurately, especially so when critical services are down or at risk. I have the patience, tenacity and research ability to ensure problems are solved quickly. I am strongly focused towards customer service and always strive to exceed the customers highest expectations.
