I’m a geek and need to get round to writing the copy for my about me page. Currently I’m employed as a Director of Operations. I’m focused on migrating SmartOS zones off the Joyent Public Cloud and onto the TextDrive Public Cloud — a cloud I built with SmartOS for TextDrive. I use chef to automate things and am working on various chef cookbooks to automate things like imgadm import images from the Joyent Machine Images repository.
I’m an opensource zealot – I have released some popular open source code which provides wrappers for connecting to the Clickatell API service (PHP, Ruby and Python), an online business directory (php), etc. Most code I release is released under the MIT or BSD licenses.
When I’m not slaving away behind the keyboard I can be found walking my Irish Setter and/or the kids to the park or watching TV with the wife.
