Self Portrait

Self Portrait

I was born in the Philippines and grew up in the Midwest, after which I transplated to the East Coast where I've been living happily ever since.

I'm a former Soldier of the Wisconsin Army National Guard and veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

In 2012 I co-authored the book Deploying Rails: Automate, Deploy, Scale, Maintain and Sleep at Night with Tom Copeland.

I'm happily earning a living as a DevOps engineer working on awesome things in the financial services world and enthusiastically putting lots of spare time into photography, filmmaking, and field recording in Delaware.
