Automation Engineer + Writer + Lifelong Student

Derek has been flying around in the worlds of Windows, Linux, and Serverless. He’s been building skills across different dimensions. Regardless of the state of his existence in technology scenarios, he scripts and automates whatever he can. He also loves to teach others about automation land. Other than that stuff, and eating several bowls of virtual soup, he writes incomplete fiction and studies a broad array of bizarre subjects.

He also writes summaries about himself in the third-person.


Previously worked at companies such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Thomson Reuters.
