For the past eight years I have worked as a system administrator, focusing on IT infrastructure monitoring and automation. I specialize in the following Open Source tools: Nagios, Cacti, and Cobbler. Currently I work for the Center for High Performance Computing at the University of Utah as a Linux and network administrator.
Python is my preferred scripting language. I use it for my Nagios plugins, Cacti scripts, and just about everything else.
I’m a licensed amateur radio operator (KE7ZEA) since 2006, with an interest in satellite communication. I also enjoy board games, and I’m amassing a nice collection.
