Currently I am employed as a DevOps Consultant at AAM Group, Brisbane. Here I am responsible for providing, implementing and overseeing cloud infrastructure, continous integration and continous delivery, and information security.
Although I mainly focus on the operational side of technology, I am highly experienced in development practices and tools. My skills as a DevOps engineering complement my skills as a developer by allowing me to seemingly embed myself in development tribes when needed.
Outside of work you’ll often find me camping, 4x4ing, or developing my own web applications and services to further expand my portfolio
The areas of expertise I focus on
I have a passion for making things better performant, its an inner competition.
Projects are compliant to best practices and security standards.
Solutions I deliver are always optimized for cost, someone has the pay the bill.
Solutions I design are fault-tollerant, loosely coupled and feedback controlled.
I design solutions to be simple and leverage servless technologies to keep things simple and performant.
My fondness of chaos engineering is a bit concerning, I like to break things and learn about it.
Luke has an unique mix of excellent problem solving ability and skill set. He is very operational focused and has innovative continuous improvement ideas in his mind all the time. It is an absolute pleasure to work under his direct influence. He is an able mentor with a lot of patience. He would definitely be a great asset for any company he works for.
Luke was a legend, he came on as a grad and quickly made an impact, he took it upon himself to get his AWS certification and was always his direct line manager’s choice to work on projects with exec exposure because she knew he would represent the team well and get the job done.
Luke joined my team as a graduate but quickly became a core member of the SRE team at Canstar during a period of rapid growth. He threw himself into absorbing all he could about AWS & cloud engineering, and it was great to have someone on my team who was so invested in continuing to learn, grow from feedback, and improve our systems. Luke was happy to take on many different projects and one of his greatest strengths was his ability to work with people from across the business, translating business requirements into technical solutions. He was a great asset to our team.
