Welcome to!
This is my own website, the content and views are entirely my own.
I live and work in the Midlands in the UK. I'm currently working as a AWS Cloud Engineer, but I may be interested in any offers.
I've worked in the IT related industry for over 15 years, before that I worked in the Broadcast & Cable TV industry and Higher Education sectors.

Currently my work is all AWS Cloud based, mostly focused on serverless infrastructure building. We use Lambda, DynamoDB, Cloud Formation (and some Terraform), Step Functions, as well as S3 for storage and EC2 instances. As a resule of working on a project to harden Linux images, I have worked with Ansible for Configuration Management.
We operate in an agile environment, FIXME GitHub Python Boto3

My previous work was based on OpenStack infrastructure running Ubuntu Server instances, but also with AWS S3 and GCP containers.
I have experience from previous roles of Red Hat Linux, Percona (MySQL) databases, IBM's AIX 6.2 on P590s and storage on IBM DS4800 & DS4700 SAN storage, Linux under VMware on IBM Blade Centres and some Solaris 10 systems on V440's.

Also I have Cisco network experience, both LAN switching and WAN routing, from small 2600 routers and 2950 switches to enterprise grade 6509 chassis switches.

Further details and CV available on request.
Please see for my own website which has tech articles, code and howto's.
