About Me


I am an opinionated system administrator (aren't we all?) and architect with over 15 years of experience designing innovative solutions to meet both large and small business requirements. I try and isolate the core requirements and deliver the most logical and simple solution possible.

My passion for delivering solutions that focus on security, simplicity, and usability is undying. With that being said, I don't chase shiny objects and I don't think everything should be written in JavaScript just to name a few of my anti-patterns. I said I was opinionated, right?

This quote from Albert Einstein serves as a reminder to stop over complicating things.

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler –Albert Einstein

Extra abstraction layers are most likely not required. Layers of abstraction create a harder mental model to follow, thus increasing the potential for bugs and security holes.

Thank you for stopping by,
