I currently work as a Technical Architect for an SMB operating in the health cost containment domain. During the last 12 years of my career I occupied various roles in IT going from system administration, database administration, program management and now, technical architecture. I’m interested in various technological areas such as IT infrastructure, HPC and machine learning to only name a few. As I’m an adept of the lean philosophy, this led me to build tools to help my company optimize its IT operation. In order to give back to the community, I started blogging about my experiences and the technologies involved. This earned me my first Microsoft Most Valuable Professional award in the Cloud and Datacenter Management category, something I’m very proud of. This additional exposure gave me the great opportunity to share my expertise with my peers through the Altaro’s technical blog.
