At this point, I'm going to go ahead and guess you've realized my name is Ian...so we'll skip a lot of that.

I'm an Idaho Falls, Idaho native. I spent a lot of my younger years trying to find somewhere else to go, but I kept coming back. Now that I'm an adult with a family and what not, I'm glad this is where I ended up.

Over the last 12 years, I've worked in almost every facet of the IT industry. Everything from technical support, field services, development, to my current role as a DevOps Engineer.

I'm also a Volkswagen enthusiast, a soccer fan, and a (mostly) cleaned up punk.

For the most part, I intend to use this blog to document some of the ins and outs of modern DevOps work, but it's impossible for me to not turn every conversation into something to do with music, sports, or cars.  So that kind of stuff will probably leak into here as well.

I don't promise any sort of consistency or regularity, but I will at least try to finish the things I've started.
