After receiving my degree in network security from BCIT, I started specializing is full configuration automation of hundreds of Linux servers and workstations. I’ve deployed multiple compute farm technologies, most notably Son of GridEngine focusing on resource estimation and job throughput (<10% idle resources until job queue is empty). I've built 2 IT departments from the ground up, been instrumental in organizing and executing 4 office moves and designed and overseen the buildout of 3 server rooms including power and A/C estimations.
