I am an IT expert with over 18 years of professional experience. My career began as a full-time developer then slowly transitioned into a full-time SysAdmin. Now I utilize both skill-sets as a DevOps Engineer. This range of skills has given me a unique perspective on the DevOps philosophy and how it best fits within an organization. My next career goal is to lead a team of individuals who are integrating DevOps into their enigineering lifecycle.
