I'm Rob, a full-stack developer specialising in networks and DevOps.

I'm a graduate engineer with experience working in environments from fast-paced web development houses, security operations centers, customer facing support, k12 education and behind the scenes project planning in both private and public sector roles.

I've a passion for finding solutions for problems in the most efficient way, making use of open source and existing tools alongside carefully designed bespoke "glue" applications to minimise development and maintenance workload. With a brain wired for visualisation of high-level systems and their interactions and an aptitude for rapid familiarisation of new application interfaces and network environments, I'm well equipped for any challenge.
