Some people are born to web operations and some people have it thrust upon them. Andrew Co-founded Reductive Labs and worked to help organizations build better systems with Puppet. He brings with him a background in high performance computing, computational science, embedded Linux development, web frameworks and Agile methods.

Andrew is interested in conversation about almost anything. His two sons and wife think he is pretty cool. He is definitely a villager.
