I've been learning & experimenting with computers and technology ever since I was a kid. My natural curiosity paved the way for an obsession with the Internet that has driven me to dedicate my time to finding ways to make businesses more profitable and productive using the latest software, hardware, and technological strategy available in today’s market.
I bring a can-do attitude and a mildly sarcastic sense of humor to the table, and I love a good challenge. I have a penchant for open-source technologies, clean code, and scalable systems solutions. I am Magento Developer Plus certified and a Certified Scrum Master.
I have worked as a photography editor, Windows systems administrator, web developer, DevOps enginner, and technical architect in the past.
Currently, I am the IT Director at Minute Man Services where I lead the technical architecture, strategy, and development in building and maintaining Minute Man's cloud-based automation systems.
