Hi, I’m Alex. 👋

I currently work as a Security, Orchestration, Automation & Response (SOAR) engineer in the energy sector.

Day-to-day, I spend my time working with Splunk, Ansible, and all the fun stuff that goes into securely maintaining, administering, and monitoring performant “big data” deployments on Linux.

I love containers, ComplianceAsCode, immutable infrastructure, BPF, and auditd.
