I'm a senior UNIX system administrator in the San Francisco Bay Area. The great thing about being a sysadmin is that I get to dabble in a little bit of everything. Work is never boring, that's for sure. I still find it hard to believe that people are willing to pay me to have so much fun.

I'm a big fan of Perl. It's an excellent programming language with a fantastic user community. Learning Perl, and improving my programming skills with it, has been one of my most rewarding personal and professional decisions.
