I have been a tester, manager, automator, and release angineer for over 15 years. Working in Windows, *nix and distributed environments I've come in as the first part of QA and built groups or joined existing groups. I like process and am an evangelist for process improvement. I also dabble in tool smithing, while I am not a great coder I stick with it and have built up a nice array of tools over the years in Perl, Ruby and PowerShell. I automate when I can now, as that is my prime passion, and I wear all kinds of hats doing whatever is needed but always handling code from test to production.

I have many interests in cooking, reading, home improvement, MakerSpaces and many more. You'll find me on many SX's here.

I currently work for NaviNet as a Software Engineer in Test II

comment Diaper rash: if properly treated how long will it last?
I've had good luck with the Balmex Clear Ointment, put a little on every time you change a diaper and I've never seen rash with either of my two kids (my oldest never had it, and my one year old has yet to have it). Great stuff! I just wish more stores carried it as I would prefer to prevent this than have to treat it.
