There are many guides online for how to host a single-page application (SPA) on AWS with S3 and CloudFront but none (that I found) covered this in a proper way. Many are out-dated, they left the S3 bucket as public, or didn’t identify how to properly handle errors when you get a 404 or if the…
I’m a huge fan of Linux but I’ve been know to dabble with Windows and Mac environments. Let’s face it, all the good games are on Windows! I’m a regular Linux user, so I’m not afraid to work on the command line and tackle a problem. I enjoy the terminal and find the challenge of finding a problem and creating a solution to be as enjoyable as playing the new Zelda game on the Switch! I have a lot of experience managing Linux, Windows, and Mac servers. I am a fan of CentOS for server environments but am also aware that technologies work better in the proper environment. I enjoy system administration and designing infrastructure. I love the cloud and have a lot of experience with AWS (even got certified to prove it). Designing scalable architecture is challenging and fun; luckily I’ve been able to make a great career out of it! Chef makes it more enjoyable and I get to use Ruby, which I never really thought I’d be happy about. I started off coding in PHP and building websites, mostly for local Djs, this evolved into a passion that I did for over a decade in industries ranging from broadcasting, healthcare, real-estate and debt-collection. Lately I have moved towards server management and solutions architect. I have a strong interests in security so this has lead me to designing more stable systems without sacrificing security, yeah… I do not disable SELinux. I know, scary right?! I have proposed, designed and implemented numerous security policies that have strengthened company security. I could go on and on about other feats I’ve accomplished and how great I am but writing about myself isn’t something I really like to do. So let’s discuss what I can do for you.

1450 Inc / EHRScope
Senior Programmer / Systems Administrator
I ran the programming department, worked with the design team, and took on a lot of the IT directors’ workload. I consulted for outsource projects and company needs. I also worked on the core system the company depended on for its day-to-day operations. I improved algorithms to increase not only speed and memory consumption but also accuracy. I updated the company servers, software, and code to be up-to-date with the latest technology and security standards. Worked with teams daily, ranging from accounting to sales. I mostly worked on proprietary solutions but there were also many WordPress customizations for different services.

I implemented scalable architecture to a custom social media platform with high traffic. I increased and improved the system security by rewriting the entire core of the system.

I was involved in rebranding the company and implementing policies.

This solution has worked for over…
