About Me

Breaking systems without breaking a sweat

ols is a distinguished technologist currently working as a Data Operations Manager at a global sports betting, gaming, and entertainment provider.

His topics of expertise include OpenBSD, automation, chaos and resilience engineering, Dungeons & Dragons, and Nerf warfare; he also takes an interest in security, privacy, opensource, decentralisation and federation, hardware hacking, and cyberdecks.

He is a strong proponent of open software and concepts, and the culture of hackers, makers, and breakers. He has an optimistic vision of the future, and believes that technology has a major part to play in a positive future for the planet.

Interested in technology (specifically how it breaks) from a young age, his first foray into Linux was in 2003 when, while blindly following the installation instructions in Sams Teach Yourself Red Hat Linux, he upgraded his dad’s Windows XP machine to Red Hat 9. This resulted in him getting his own computer, so has been widely regarded as a good thing.
