I joined IRIS in August 2022 as Infrastructure Ops Engineer. I have a lifelong interest in computing and problem-solving. My professional career began 20 years ago, building and servicing networks for MSPs. I earned a BS in Computer Forensics and Digital Investigations from Champlain College in Burlington, VT. After a brief stint as an expert witness, I chose to dive headfirst into the weeds and pursue my true passion of building and administering web applications. I worked as a SysAdmin managing services running within physical datacenters and colo datacenters. In the past 10 years, I have transitioned to focusing on cloud deployment strategies and DevOps support. I love collaborating on design challenges and sleuthing out solutions to technical hurdles.
I am a musician and a songwriter. Most of my free time is spent writing and recording original music. Otherwise I can be found petting my dachshund, Seven, and my greyhound, Blaze.
