Technology should be your friend first in development. Too many times we see devs and devops with a struggle against their own creation. It doesn't have to be.
Work like life should be a melding of tech, logic, creativity, collaboration, teamwork, and people simply being cool to each other. Do that and watch ideas become art.

During work hours, I am a web developer with interest in building apps using PHP and Python. I am not a fan of convoluted code for the sake of the latest trend, nor am I super keen on rebuilding the wheel. What I do like is putting stable, reliable, and fast code live. I have set up, provisioned, and monitored a cluster of servers for many years. I don't consider myself a system administrator or DevOps, but I have successfully portrayed one with great success.
After hours I love to ride my bike, hike, explore the outdoors, stargaze, read, watch movies, look at art, hang out with my family, and sometimes get involved with community theater.
