He was formerly a senior operations engineer at global telco Verizon, designing resilient, high-performance infrastructures for corporations such as Ford, McDonald's, and Bank of America. He now works independently, helping to bring enterprise-grade performance and reliability to clients with slightly smaller pockets, but very big ideas.He likes writing books, especially about Puppet (The Puppet Cookbook is available from the same publisher). It seems that at least some people enjoy reading them, or maybe they just like the pictures. He also provides training and coaching on Puppet and devops, which it turns out is far harder than simply doing the work himself.Off the clock, he is a medal-winning competitive rifle and pistol shooter, and a decidedly uncompetitive piano player. He lives in a small cottage in Cornwall and believes, like Cicero, that if you have a garden and a library, then you have everything you need.You can follow him on Twitter at @bitfield
