You know what they say about the hats
When you start your own company, you end up wearing a lot of hats. Interacting with clients pushes you into a solutions architecture role, hiring developers means you naturally have to learn how to become a technical project manager, and landing larger and larger clients means you have to know the ins-and-outs of trending technologies and practices. Over my professional career, I’ve traded one hat for a progressively larger, cooler, more envious hat.

Cloud Computing Consultant

I can help you ensure your cloud architecture is solid from the start, or help migrate your existing infrastructure to the cloud piecemeal.
