About Me
I am in my happy place when a technical problem takes me into new territory. I love the challenge of breaking complex problems into their components and then putting their pieces back together.
Favorite Open Source Project
I am excited about working on Cloud Native hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) with Harvester, which helps you manage your infrastructure more easily and lower total operating costs. It is built on top of Kubernetes and other CNCF projects for bare metal data centers. It's a fairly new project put out by SUSE, and it's super cool.
Coding Languages
Golang | NodeJS | front-end JS | Python | Bash scripting
