About Me


My name is Bert.

I am a dedicated father and husband, and I'm sure I'm a pretty regular guy (for now).

My trade is tech, with a specialty in Cloud Architecture, Systems Administration/Orchestration, and everything that ships with DevOps methodoligies, which includes Desired State and Configuration Management, among other buzzwordy terms.

My passions

  • Technology
  • Education
  • Good, solid, parenting
  • Child welfare - Become a Big at Big Brothers Big Sisters!
  • Saving the planet by Composting! - See my notes here

My work

Feel free to peruse the rest of my free and opensource projects on github.

You can also reach me on LinkedIn.

My tech stack

I absolutely love DevOps and am forever a student of programming languages such as Python, PowerShell, Go, and Ruby.

For shell scripting on POSIX-compliant systems, I mostly use Bash and zsh, but I can get pretty crafty on Windows with PowerShell and even BATCH.

My Web skills include:

My goto for infrastructure orchestration and platform tooling is Ansible.

For Infrastructure as Code (IaC), I use Terraform.

Microservices and Virtualization? Oh yeah!:

But wait, there's more:

I'm all about that Jenkins and Argo CD for Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD), and I love, love, love these Atlassian Products:
