About Me

Computer and Networking Infrastructure expert with over 18 years of experience working hands on and in a managerial capacity with every layer of the stack.

I’ve done enterprise deployments in co-located server farms and I’ve migrated entire companies into the cloud. I’ve led multi-billion dollar companies, designing, building and operating highly available, high performance production services on a global scale.

My broad range of knowledge helps me see the bigger picture so I can find the best ways for businesses to get more out of their IT investment.
