Welcome to my blog! I write articles intended for other technology professionals, and I hope you find the content relevant, practical, and interesting.
I am a technology professional and have worked in various roles including architect, consultant, engineer, and freelance software developer. I have a passion for programming, and these days am focusing much of my attention on infrastructure-as-code and applying software development practices to IT modernization efforts.
For about me, see my LinkedIn profile.
About the Blog
I primarily use this blog to jot down technical notes about IT infrastructure, with a focus on VMware data center and cloud automation solutions. My other technical interests are varied, including software development, public cloud, machine learning, security, and VR development.
