About me

I am a 30 something manager working for Workday with a background in web hosting, cloud engineering and application development. I’ve been working in management since 2011 but keep a keen interest and passion for technology.

I was, what’s fondly known as, a generalist. I’ve worked on everything from data centre layouts, rack & cabling layouts, BGP configuration, FreeBSD kernel development, pension management software, build systems, javascript, HTML and a whole lot more in-between. My background is primarily with open source software on BSD and more recently Linux systems. Nowadays, I play in my spare time.

I work in the Platform Engineering area of Workday helping to construct and improve our build pipelines, deployment tooling, monitoring systems & virtualization platform.
