Heath has worked in IT Operations for many years. He has been the SME for Linux, virtualization, email routing, and storage. While he contributed to the data team creating ETL workflows for a public library, he found a fondness for working with data. In other capacities, he also taught as an instructor at a technical college, worked for the state of Colorado on an ERP implementation, and provided Oracle application support for a financial firm. Though he was never far from a Linux or UNIX terminal in any of those roles. During his off hours, Heath likes to swim, drink a proper brew of tea, play with his dogs and cooking something in his Dutch oven.
