Over 15 years of experience in the industry, with expertise ranging from networking through systems, both self-hosted and cloud-native. Self-directed autodidact, with strong leadership experience in multiple environments (both customer facing and internal). Operator of a boutique consulting practice since 2015 - often engaging directly with primary stakeholders to learn their desired outcome, structuring the work plan to achieve that, and then working towards that goal - whether doing so individually or as "drop-in" part-time team lead along their team.

Technical experience covers all major modern languages and platforms, with deep operational knowledge and fair-to-extensive knowledge for most others. List of common typicals follows below.

About me as a person: I have a strong drive to building performant and reliable things, be that teams or software. In my leadership roles I also often teach, as upskilling those around me is a win for all. In addition to the technical expertise listed below, I also have a good understanding of the business domain requirements and regularly draw on this to better align expectations and outcomes as needed.
