I’m John! I work in technology as a sysadmin-turned-DevOps scripting nerd. I write lots of code in Python, PowerShell, Bash, and Groovy. I use REST APIs to integrate disparate systems together for monitoring, alerting, and data visualization through LogicMonitor, Power BI, and Pygal. I also manage SaaS applications like Office 365, and I’ve recently started deploying a Puppet environment for managing our Linux infrastructure.

On the side I like to pretend I’m a writer by doing things like running this blog. In my free time I’m a *nix and open source enthusiast. I think IRC is still significantly better than social networks. My taste in music is my best feature, followed by my tastes in bourbon and craft beer.

If you found this site looking for the now-defunct Unusually Pink Podcast, you can find the recording archives hosted in Dropbox. Feel free to check it out along with the other places where I hang out online at the links below.
