I’ve worked on a fairly wide range of Unix/Linux flavors both as application developer and system administrator. Have a working knowledge of tools such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, Apache, VMWare, Xen and scripting languages such as Perl, Python, Shell, PHP.

Most of my interests en efforts go into optimizing system and application environments for use and maintenance. In this I’ve worked intensively with Cfengine, RHN Satellite and Spacewalk.
