Hey, my name is Will. I do DevOps.

I've been fascinated by computers since my dad taught me how to launch games with DOS commands in 1991.

After mastering Windows 3.11, I moved onto...actually, let me skip ahead.

For the past 1-2 years, I've been using Python and Javascript to facilitate event management for a Security Operations Center.

I've been using these tools extensively:

  • ServiceNow (including quite a bit of scripting within the platform)
  • Streamsets
  • VSCode
  • Elasticsearch
    • Lots of API usage to manage and manipulate data
    • I've done a lot with ingestion, queries, mapping, templates, reindexing, analysis, searching, and more
  • Terraform
    • AWS deployment

Cyber Threat Intelligence

Prior to my current DevOps role, I was the Cyber Threat Intelligence Engineer at H&R Block, and my primary role was to engineer the organization's response to risk by analyzing the threat landscape and preparing appropriate prevention measures as well as to design the response for various scenarios.

Firewalls and Networking

Before that, I spent three years in the SOC for which I'm now performing development. I provided support for all things networking - switching, routing, firewalls, and configuration management.

My specialties were:

  • Juniper SRX/EX (with some MX here and there)
  • Pulse Secure VPN
  • Palo Alto Networks firewalls

IT Consulting

From 2010-2015, I provided tech consulting for homes and business in Lawrence, KS and then the San Francisco Bay Area.

While in those positions, I worked a lot with:

  • VMWare ESXi
  • Windows Servers
  • Synology
  • Windows/macOS/Linux/iOS
  • Viruses/malware
  • Hardware repair

Outside of work

  • Being a dad!
  • Dungeons and Dragons (latest campaign here)
  • Currently playing: World of Warcraft, No Man's Sky, Rocket League
  • Projects around the house (novice DIYer)
  • Riding my bicycle around Lawrence, Kansas

I also have this website: Homelab.City
