Hi, I'm Andy

As the sidebar says, I'm a Sysadmin, Developer, and Wood Worker from St. Helens, UK


I specalise in Linux system administration and automation using Puppet. In my current role, I'm heading up the roll-out and day-to-day management of Puppet in a managed service company using a VMware hybrid cloud environment. I am a Puppet Certified Professional, and I'm on route to acquire my RedHat Certified System Administrator in the next few months.


From time to time I develop using Python, but have a understanding of Java, Ruby, and Go pipelines and build processes. I'm very comftable using Git and Jenkins, and I've had exposure to Perforce and Bamboo

Wood Worker

In my spare time I'm an apprentice level wood turner with my own workshop, and its a excellent hobby to relax and unwind with while still keeping a small element of danger and excitement.
