I’m an expert, highly-intelligent, and flexible DevOps guy.

My primary focus has been on userspace Linux Systems Administration, but like all true DevOps experts I can easily switch back and forth between programming (“Dev”) and systems administration (“Ops”).

I have a particular passion for version control (Git, etc) and automation (all types from the simplest cronjob or shell script to a full featured configuration management system such as Puppet).

Much of my professional-level programming experience has been in Ruby (“on Rails” or plain), but I’m also experienced with a broad variety of other tools and languages.

My greatest non-technical skills are that I take the time to really learn what my employers and stake-holders actually want (you’d be surprised how rare that is), I’m meticulously honest, and I adjust to new and complex systems incredibly fast.

I have an amateur level interest in eBooks and related technologies, including ePub, Markdown, Pandoc, OCR, etc. I would be interested in the chance to gain some professional experience in these or related areas.
