System Administrator, GEMINI
My role with the GEMINI team:
I help out with System Administration work, architecting, deploying, and testing Linux infrastructure.
My past experience and accomplishments:
My career and training started with Windows servers, and has moved nearly exclusively into Linux environments, managing network and server infrastructure. I've had a lot of experiences self-managing as a "one man team" which has given me a pretty strong ability to take action and hold myself accountable. I've done work for an MSP, solo consulting, repair shop work, and setup/management for various small businesses including start-ups. Really the whole kit and caboodle.
I feel most inspired when:
I’m able to see the impacts of my work; I really like the feedback loop. With infrastructure being so core to any project, it puts me in a great position to connect with different types of people who I can help directly and also learn from.
A few of my favourite things include:
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens (is this taken already??)
Enjoying and exploring the world of tea has become somewhat of a pastime for me
Video games, especially puzzle games like “The Witness” and most rhythm games
Tinkering: IoT, 3D printing, and server projects
