UNIX Systems & Engineer at University of California


I am an experienced system engineer and storage specialist. I have looked after most types of computing infrastructure within the university setting, as well as high-availability web and database servers for independent projects. As a team lead, I have overseen the development and implementation of many major projects including a redesign of UCSC’s Linux management stragegy and the migration of most critical application data to an enhanced storage environment. 

As a systems engineer, I have specialized in SVR4 systems administration, SAN, NAS, and the deployment of dynamic web applications using most major types of application stacks. I am particularly well-versed in open-source software solutions for systems deployment and web services.
