It's in good taste after all.
I'm essentially an Open Source geek at heart. Passions include investigating new technologies and platforms that might help me both at work and at home. Often, technologies I start using at home turn up in my professional life as they are just too useful to ignore.
While I'm a RedHat man at heart ( Fedora user since Core 1 and RedHat since Hurricane ) I have great exposure to Debian based systems thanks to my professional experience with Revolution Linux. This affords me a very wide selection of tools and knowledge as well as the ability to become acclimated to new environments.
Professionally, I have experience with a wide range of services. Everything from Apache and Postfix to PostgreSQL and MySQL. KVM and OpenVZ are tools used daily as well. Other technologies, such as Sheepdog(KVM storage), may come in handy in the near future...
As a family man and father of three children it's also very important to me to provide a safe and welcoming home computing environment – an excellent exercise in security and content management!
Other passions include cooking. I can make the best pizza you've ever had or a three course thanksgiving dinner. If it's creative, it's fun!
