I have been coding for over 20 years, as well as contributing to Opensource projects. Currently, I am contributing to kops, K8s intro and upgrades, HA applications, and other Kubernetes designs. I have architected critical projects with such companies as Datapipe, Accenture, Motorola, ADP, Inuit, Warner Bros, and CenturyLink. I am most passionate about scalable open source technologies, and not getting woken up at two in the morning because a system went boom. Outside of work, I can be found working on OSS too much, enjoying time with my wife, or passing on my love for the Martial Arts through Kenpo.
