About Me

A seasoned IT professional with more than a decade of experience in the industry. Whether project leader or just team member, I've had my hands on a multitude of technologies and solutions for real-world enterprise IT. As such, wearing multiple hats hasn't been just a requirement, its been a joy. I define IT as the passion for finding the correct solution for the need and deploying in a reproducible, scaleable way. As of late I've been drawn to Agile methologies and the emergence from leveraging said concepts. There's something quite elegant in visualizing projects, no matter your contribution level.

However, my greatest accomplishment is my wonderful family, composed of my awe-inspring newborn daughter, my rock-solid wife Brenna, and the quirky dogs we've come to rescue. Want more? Try my blog.
