about

I am a System and DevOps Engineer for Cerner Corporation in Kansas City.

I graduated from Southern Illinois University Carbondale with a Bachelor’s in Information Systems Technologies with a focus in networking and security. I currently work with AWS, F5, Splunk, OEL/RHEL Servers, and automation tools like Spinnaker, Jenkins, and Chef. My current position relies heavily on the “configuration as code” philosophy. My passion is networking and hardware, so in my spare time I work on my home lab with a pfSense firewall, a managed HP switch, a UniFi AP, and ProxMox. In the past, I have worked with Cisco devices, Palo Alto firewalls, ESXi, Active Directory, SCCM, and a variety of HP, Dell, and SuperMicro servers. When I step away from work and my home lab, I enjoy playing disc golf and watching college football.
