Agent of Chaos @ Gremlin

August - 2018

Breaking things, professionally.

Senior Lead Solutions Engineer @ Savvis/Centurylink

2013 - 2018

In late-2013 I shifted positions to one of the leading companies in cloud computing where I've focused on transitioning large financial firms to the cloud. This has been a very intensive role, requiring not only a deeply technical understanding of large scale cloud operation in both infrastructure and software, but the ability to merge the technical to business goals and operations. From the onset of an engagement I take a very consultative role, gathering business requirements from different levels of an organization. Those requirements are then translated to a technical design which can be disseminated both internally to service delivery engineers and also to the business leaders of my clients. I focus on helping to realize not only very large scale projects - such as grid computing clusters, big data initiatives and highly transactional financial systems - but also to reduce risk and cost and enhance reliability.

Senior Solutions Architect @ Logicworks

2012 - 2013

In mid-2012 I transitioned from the role of a systems engineer/administrator to a solutions architect. This transition created a new role inside the company as well as a new department. My responsibilities in this role have been supporting the sales team by providing real-time analysis and engineering for customer demands; Providing thought leadership to our company; Interacting with our marketing team to generate white papers and technical documentation; And involving myself deeper in the community to provide technical leadership and activism, which internally drives our product development and quality of service provided to our customers. As this was a new role inside this company, I have also been a driving force to start the SA department, manage time, and promote cross-team communication and collaboration.

Senior Linux Engineer @ Logicworks

2009 - 2012

This opportunity has allowed me to develop products with some of the most advanced hardware available. I have played a key role in helping to bring an infiniband based private and public cloud product to market utilizing a 40GB/s storage fabric. Other duties have included project management roles, advisory and think-tank roles, educational roles to train junior staff members, and software development. One development project I led centered around building automation tools to help streamline server deployments; the systems utilized were Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS. Additionally I have acted in the capacity of tier 3 customer support for exclusive clients requiring a dedicated engineer to oversee and manage their services.
