I recently had the good fortune to encounter Tom McGonagle, SE with F5, via the Boston DevOps chatroom, moderated by Dave Fredricks. I had been invited to post in Dave’s newly inspired mentor/mentee topic channel, which I welcomed as I had been looking for guidance around a side project of mine. Tom contacted […]
I was devastated on Wednesday by the election turnout. When I came home from work I curled up in bed with the lights out. I yelled at Jeff because he wasn’t angry enough. It was painful to me that he didn’t seem to be hurting like I was.
For hours that night I let the darkness shrivel me up […]
As of Dec. 5 2016, I will be starting with Acquia as a Cloud Engineer, supporting their Drupal Cloud on AWS. I am super stoked to be applying my experience in scalability, virtualization, and continuous integration to Acquia’s cloud offering.

I could just forget about it
No one needs this
Someone else could do this better and probably will
This has probably already been done anyways
This doesn’t matter
I don’t matter

Why waste my time
I’ll regret […]
I am blessed with a pretty awesome family, and as part of that awesomeness it just so happens that my sister’s two kids have a passion for Minecraft. Her oldest, Cyrus, is 9 years old and had on his own already gotten into the more technical aspects available in the PC version of Minecraft. When I […]
You and I have a problem on our hands.
Somewhere out there in my country and in yours, sleeping in the darkness are young, impressionable children whose parents will teach them that what Donald Trump has said is not only okay, but better than what others are saying. As a working-class adult in 2015, I individually and collectively share […]
In May I switched companies and tech fields – I am now working as a DevOps Engineer at Teradata. During my last year at Axeda I had the opportunity to work on projects dealing with Amazon Web Services and EC2, and I became fascinated with the idea of managing infrastructure […]
