About Me

I live in Austin, TX where I am a staff DevOps Engineer at GE Aviation.

I am responsible for driving secure development practices, implementing build and release automations, and supporting the development lifecycle. I also help the organization achieve specific outcomes by translating these requirements into sustainable and durable practices. What do I love most? Enabling the best from my team, and coffee... Great things are possible, but only after coffee!

It wasn't until working at GE that I discovered my passion for DevOps. My job is as much about psychology as it is technology. I believe, many of the principles and practices of DevOps deal more with people than technology. DevOps exists because people needed a better way of working.

At the risk of sounding cliche, DevOps is 99% about people and their needs.

  • What do engineers need? What do they want?
  • What do project managers need? What do they want?
  • What does the organization need?
  • Why are some tools better than others?
  • Why do some practices work where others fail?
  • Are their common factors to highly productive teams? What are they?
  • How can teams meet constraints in the most effective way possble?

The list could go on forever. There is a lot of room in this role to be creative!
