I’m just your average beer & coffee drinking software developer and sysadmin in Portland, Oregon. When I told people I was moving here, nobody was surprised. This may have something to do with the toe shoes. I’m a Developer Advocate at Puppet, which basically means that I know how to talk to developers outside the company and to developers inside the company and I can help them to be friends with each other. I get to play with all the cool new tools and help others learn how to do it for real.

When I started here, I was in professional services, which meant that I visited exotic places like Denver and Columbus and teach people to use Puppet or help them integrate it into their infrastructure. Now most of my travel is to blab at conferences and such.

Oh, and I run marathons in those funny finger shoes. This is destined to one day be the online home of my consolidated projects and writing. Someday.
