Linux Sysadmin

As an experienced sysadmin and Debian GNU/Linux expert, I can setup and manage systems from a small cloud server to a large network of interoperating servers. I specialise in Debian-based distributions, but also have experience with other Linux distributions and commercial unix systems like Solaris.


I have built and maintained systems ranging from small shell-scripts to large complex applications spanning multiple servers. I am fluent in many languages, both low- and high-level, and adept at learning new languages, systems and APIs. I contribute to several Free/Open Source projects.

Web Solutions

Able to create and maintain richly interactive websites, small or large, integrated with CMSs, 3rd party APIs and services (eg google maps), complying with latest standards and best practices. I can also modify existing sites, to add more features or spruce up their appearance.
