I understand the importance of SLI's/SLO's and SLA's and truly believe they're the path to happiness.
I've spent a lot of time in many different types of companies. I've been in places when companies don't translate business objectives into their software organisation. And the inverse where the business is led by decisions in software.
I feel comfortable with my skills, (I know what i'm good at and not) and I know when to ask for help.
I've fought some really hot fires in my time. I know how a level head can mean the difference between minutes and hours for resolutions.
I love a good postmortem! (Software obviously)
I have a sixth sense for infrastructure and how it should come together.
In my personal life I love to laugh. I love good food and wine. I love the sea and spend as much time as I can in it.
I run, I garden and I drink bourbon.
I have a family, and we are working hard to put ourselves in a green space where we can live in nature and enjoy our lives.
