About

Hi!I’m just a dude from Boston who loves sports, devops, the cyberz, geo-politics and coffee. 

I am a self-motivated programmer, engineer and private business owner with over 20 years of experience provisioning, validating and automating a wide variety of systems and software platforms. 

I am currently employed by a “unicorn” security start up headquartered in Sunnyvale, CA. I design, create and maintain automated tools, applications and active monitoring systems for a SaaS security platform that processes over 1.5 trillion events per week. I was responsible for the strategies around the quality and continuous delivery of that platform. 

I was previously employed by Gravity.com to develop new features for analytics platform called Gravity Analytics that processed hundreds of millions of user interactions daily.

I created an open source project called HighRoller.io. It’s an object-oriented PHP wrapper for the popular Highcharts javascript charting library and it’s available on github.

I am a ZCE PHP5 Certified programmer.

Previously I was employed by Panasonic AvionicsMcAfee/Foundstone, Fidelity Investments, NYTimes/Abuzz, Centra Software and IBM/Lotus Development.

Prior to the technology field, I worked in broadcasting for WBCN FM (“104 FM, the Rock of Boston”) and in medical radiography for St Elizabeth Medical Center.

Admittedly, most of the time I have no idea what I’m doing, but, that is a state of being called learning and I am pretty dogged at that.

In my friend’s parlance, I am what is referred to as a digger (i.e. one who digs).
