DBA & Developer
Software Developer/DBA focused on Web and Database applications
Who am I?
I am a Database Administrator and Developer with a primary focus on database systems and ETL processes, as well as a growing interest in Dev/SysOps. I graduated from the University of Scranton with a B.S. in Neuroscience in 2013, and again in 2019 with an M.S. in Software Engineering.
I realized I had a passion for Computer Science, in particular web dev and database systems, and added a Computer Science minor in my senior year. Professionally I started as a PHP and Java dev using Postgresql and *nix systems, until I changed gears and became a MS SQL Server DBA. My strengths lie in blending my development and DBA experience to create ETL pipelines. Recently I have been taking my time out of work to learn more about Sys/DevOps and cloud operations, as well as Chemistry and Biology.
What are my skills?
- Java, PHP, Go, Python
- Unix/Linux Systems
- MS SQL Server, Postgresql, MySQL
- Microsoft Azure, AWS Familiarity
- Terraform familiarity
What are my hobbies?
Besides software development I enjoy many other hobbies. I love fishing and hunting. I am a terrible but persistent golfer. I also enjoy playing tuba and upright bass as well as brewing my own beer.
