About

Lance

I am a software engineer with a diverse experience set around both traditional IT and more modern cloud infrastructure environments. I am a proponent of the “everything as code” mindset and strive to codify, orchestrate, and automate as much as humanly possible to relieve operational demands. I believe that the more you can automate, the more you can scale, and the more you can further innovate.

I have strong experience managing complex infrastructure and applications, automating business and process workflows, performing large scale load testing, building custom software applications (frontend and backend), and operating production workloads in both on-premise and cloud environments for a variety of industry verticals (gaming, e-commerce, SaaS, entertainment, health care & life sciences).
