Full Biography

As a United States Marine Corps Veteran, and of the Afghan war, I am instilled with three things: pride in the quality of my work, personal motivation, and teamwork. I design, create, patch, and support cloud systems through VMware's Software-Defined Data Centre (SDDC). Whether that problem is build engineering with OpenStack on VMware through vCloud Automation Center or developing application lifecycle management, or even Video Games as a Service, I can make it happen, for all platforms! I've built out Bungie's Halo as a Service, called HaaS! I'm not limited to just one programming language either. I can actively debug and provide support for Python, Perl, Java, JavaScript, bash, and C++.
