About the author

I’m Kenn. I was born in 1964 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I’ve always been an aficionado of science and history, an animal lover, and a writer/musician.

I blundered into the field of computer programming right around the time I turned twenty, and it has been my lifelong career. It wasn’t until I the web came along that my career also became my passion.

I consider myself privileged to have spent almost three decades serving my hometown as an IT professional with the City of Chattanooga.

Servers, software, and words

I’m a software nerd, but I know a lot of work goes into creating great software. One of the things I love about open source software is that it gives me the opportunity to explore great software and – usually – tweak it.

I’m a serious server/cloud nerd, though, and that’s where my love of open source software really comes into play: I like tricking out new hosting configs for various pieces of software. I enjoy making software resilient, redundant, secure, fast, and tuning it into lots of bell, whistles, and integrations.

Writing about it is something I enjoy as well, but since writing about it kind of sometimes ends up in second-place, I don’t always do it consistently.

I’m working on getting better at that!
