I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in early March 2014.
My hope is to leave things better than I found them.
I find pistachios enjoyable.
I believe that the means determine the eventual end.
I have a broad background in infrastructure administration (*nix, networking, virtualization, Puppet, Kubernetes, Openstack, etc), information security (engineering, governance, compliance, etc), and care deeply about servant leadership.
- Previously held titles at WMF: Operations Engineer (Core Ops Team), Engineering Manager (Labs/Cloud Services), Lead Operations Engineer (Cloud Services), Security Engineer (Security)
- I also have the nick rush in various places. This is my shellname and my username on Gerrit. I had the nick chasemp as a volunteer (briefly) prior to employment by the Wikimedia Foundation in Labs/Cloud. If you see a rush or a chasemp that's probably me :)
- I did much of the work to sunset RT, Trello, and Bugzilla (and more) in favor of Phabricator
