A wanna be dev masquerading as a sysadmin

I am a systems administrator. At work I work wit both Linux and Windows servers. Outside of work I work with Linux machines exclusively. My go-to language is Python. I am also comfortable in C, Go, Bash, and PowerShell. If you are interested in seeing a resume, feel free to email me.

I have some animals: a rabbit, two dogs, three horses, two turtles (an Eastern Paint and an Eastern Box; both rescues), ten chickens, two cats, a bunch-o-fish, and three lizards (beared dragon, green anole and blue tailed skink).

I like to tinker and build. Particularly I like building aquarium/terrarium related stuff, like filters. I am currently working on a project I call RECS which stands for Reptile Environmental Control System. This is a single microcontroller to manage lighter, heat, and various atomospheric conditions in reptile habitats. I am working on this in anticipation of two rescue Sulcatas I am getting, as well as some future lizards I wish to get.

I am fascinated by low-tech aquariums and terrariums. I am currently working on tranistioning my 150 gallon aquarium’s filtration to an overhead refugium/planter. So far my record is three months with good numbers and no water changes. This was when the tank had a turtle, an oscar, three African cichlids, and two common plecos.

I have a degree in New Testament studies, with a minor in Greek.

And I am opinionated.
