Technology is my passion. I've shaped my life, and 15+ years of professional experience around it. AWS is my playground. As an AWS Certified Security Professional, I seek to ensure businesses can take full advantage of everything it has to offer.

The cloud is a superpower that a driven professional can use to make his impact on the world. Applying cutting edge information technology in clever and intuitive ways is what I do. I work every day to move the needle on cloud compliance for efficiency, security, and cost optimization using the latest in containers, serverless, and automation.

My accomplishments include raising compliance and lowering costs, always doing Enterprise AWS right, and making the cloud easy. I continue to tinker and publish my own innovative solutions to technology problems.
