I'm a published author, DevOps engineer, and developer. I wrote the Python QuickStart Guide, the Sign of Alchemy fantasy series, and several novels, including Dragonfly.
I'm also an extremely amateur musician and ham radio operator.
I write both tech and fiction books, but I've also written standalone novels like Dragonfly and Snow Day.
I've ghostwritten several books and have written articles in both online and journal publications.
I build and automate development workflows, manage infrastructure, administer servers, and support developers.
