TechOps/DevOps/NetOps for "Big Telecom" by day.. contractor by night!

Professionally I focus on understanding the solutions I provide from the ground up including the decisions for both functionality and security that went into them. I want to offer the Research and Development experience this has brought me to my future clients.

Throughout my career as a system and network engineer as well as computer programmer I have specialized in Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) solutions for many Information Technology (IT) tasks including computer networking; telephony; Internet web site development; and custom computer application development. I am an innovator who is inspired by the FOSS community to create professional solutions using freely available software and programming languages. I appreciate the chance to think about how to optimize not only computer related tasks but professional tasks as well. I strive to reduce duplicate tasks including data transfers and data processing by using relational databases, distributed caching, distributed file versioning, and caching data proxies. In doing so I have started development on several data management products for Wide Area Network (WAN) optimization as well as researched compression techniques for data and real time audio and video media. Common tasks in all positions are bulk data analysis through databases like PostgresSQL and MySQL including geographic queries; data mining and analysis.

I spend quite a bit of time in the dark corners of application development nobody wants to know about.
