As this sites title suggests, my name is Michael. I’m a Senior Cloud Engineer and the majority of my professional work is dedicated to ensuring infrastructure stability at scale. I live in Gold Coast, Australia, with my wife, son, and numerous hobbies.

I have extensive IT experience and have been working professionally in the IT industry since 2002. Throughout my career, I have worked in large enterprise environments as systems and network engineer in the finance, telecommunications, and media sectors. I am also an experienced coder and developer, with a passion for system automation. I am a MCP, CCNA, currently specialising in cloud engineering, and am a AWS Certified Solutions Architect and an AWS Certified SysOps Administrator.

I am also currently studying my BA in Computer Science at Deakin University, VIC. So this site is likely to be hosting a lot of my thoughts and streaming conscience as I work through my day to day life.

Outside of my professional life, I am a guitar hoarder collector player and motorcycle enthusiast, a doting husband and father, who enjoys rock music, all movie genres, space, science and technology.
