I’m not just a collection of categories and no one thing really defines me. However, there are some keywords that might help you better understand my identity. In no particular order:

  • Husband
  • Dad
  • Catholic
  • Libertarian
  • Home Brewer
  • Gun Owner
  • DevOps Fanboy
  • Golfer

I grew up in the south (Louisiana and Texas), but have lived the majority of my life in the Pacific Northwest. I’ve been married to the same woman for 26 years and we have 3 amazing kids.

I’m a self-taught computer enthusiast who is constantly trying to learn new things. I make my living as a DevOps Engineer with a focus in security. Cloud infrastructure, deployment automation, tight security; that’s me.

I’m very interested in political discourse, but it has to be civil. We can disagree, but let’s remember that we are human beings first and we all deserve respect. Just because I disagree with your opinion does not mean I hate you.

I have a few hobbies, including home brewing, shooting, and golfing.

If you’re here, you’re bound to read something on just about any of the above topics.
