About Me

I’m a career IT Professional living in Dallas, Texas. Overall, I have a broad background in enterprise IT as well as cloud computing. Currently, I work as a Enterprise Solutions Architect for Amazon Web Services.

I am passionate about all things technology. When I’m not working to help some of the worlds’ largest and most important customers migrate and manage workloads in the cloud, I also apply some of the same knowledge and principles to home IT management.

Outside of IT, I have come to appreciate the importance of staying physically active. Crossfit has become my main training regimine. The gains have allowed me to do things I would have once thought unthinkable for myself like running a half marathon.

My travels

While my travels are not extensive (compared to some people), I have gotten the opportunity to explore a lot of the United States as well as a few other countries. Long-term I am looking to grow this list in the future.

The map above is places that I’ve spent meaningful time. It would be much longer if I included places where I had a connecting flight or was just driving through. That would make for an interesting data exercise, but unfortunately I don’t have those data points and would probably miss something in the process.

Photography

Being a technical person, photography lends itself to providing a creative outlet. I originally started my photographic journey in 2008 with the purchase of a Canon 40d. Since then, I have realized that I value the ability to travel light and I’ve made the move to a mirrorless Sony a6000. I hope to highlight some of the work that I’ve done in the near future on this site.
