I have loved technology since my first Commodore 64, and that passion remains to this day. By day you'll find me integrating enterprise platforms with Camel, securing applications against common exploits, exposing services via RESTful interfaces, migrating infrastructure to the cloud, training my fellow developers, and refactoring legacy code. By night I'm playing with bleeding edge open source projects and contributing to the popular online developer portal DZone, and probably studying for my next exam to ensure that I am always on top of my game.

I am a 5 star published author, and have written code that Red Hat felt was worthy of being submitted for a patent. CEOs endorse my development skills.

Although I call myself a developer, I am quite comfortable administering a Linux server, managing a MySQL database, deploying infrastructure with Ansible, reconfiguring a firewall or just doing what needs to be done to get job finished.

To ensure that I am learning the industry's best practices, I push myself to gain certification in technologies that I rely on. Since 2012 I have completed one or more certifications a year, with Oracle proudly telling me "You are among the elite 1% of certified Java professionals who have gone on to achieve the Java Enterprise Architect certification."
