Hi, I’m Robert!
I’m a Lifelong Technologist
My public Github repos contain code I’ve released into the wild. Most of my day-to-day code lives in private and corporate repos: proprietary, sensitive, or not ready for the world to see. I also have a pile of Github Gists which serve as my nerd notes.
My Professional Life
I’ve spent most of my career in Systems Engineering (Windows, UNIX, VMWare ESX, and Linux). After taking and passing the Red Hat Performance Tuning exam, I decided to move into a leadership position, managing teams of cross-discipline technologists. In my current role, I lead an IT operations organization at McKesson and love the challenge. My leadership philosophy focuses on the three concepts: empowerment, mentorship, and inclusion.
