Picture of me with the Stanley Cup

I’ve been in the tech industry since 2006, working up from a Junior Systems Admin to my current job as a Staff Software Engineer. You may know me from my work on OpenStack Ironic, which I used and contributed to for several years of my career. Currently, I’m working on the Advanced Server Access team at Okta. Please note this blog represents my opinions, and I do not speak for my employer.

One of my primary passions outside of work is hockey, specifically Seattle Kraken (NHL) and Seattle Thunderbirds (WHL). I also enjoy video games, and sometimes streaming them on twitch as TastyMcRib.
