What is your role with SRE? SRE SCADA Programmer

What are three skills or traits that are essential to your job? Troubleshooting & debugging, programming, and communication.

What was the most unexpectedly interesting place you’ve traveled to for work? I drove to the southern Utah solar sites through northern Arizona a few times, and during each trip saw amazing weather in that area just by luck of being in the area at the right times. Marble Canyon in snow and fog, an awesome thunderstorm rolling across the high desert and then into Virgin River Gorge, there’s something really beautiful about the high desert in the Southwest.

Where did you grow up? All over Arizona: Glendale, Pinetop-Lakeside, Phoenix, Mesa, Flagstaff, Queen Creek.

What part of a kids’ movie completely scarred you? Not a kid’s movie, but I watched “On the Beach” (2000) when I was young and that gave me proper nightmares about nuclear war and radiation.

What is something you've never done but would like to try? I’ve tried skydiving, free-falling was cool but I would like to try skydiving with a squirrel suit. No mountain hugging like those dare-devils on the internet, but open space flying around under your own controls seems excellent.

Is a hot dog a sandwich? Please, let’s not split rolls here. I’m true neutral on the sandwich alignment chart, so yes, a hotdog is a sandwich. It’s savory ingredients sandwiched between two halves of a bun.

The best part of waking up is? Waking up early, but getting up slow. Spending an hour in the morning having a wicked good cup of coffee and enjoying the morning without rushing off to the daily grind is one of my favorite things to do.
