Mark Lamourine fell into system administration when the VAX shop he worked in as a student inherited a set of HP/UX boxes. He became the de-facto admin because he was the only one in the group who had read a man(8) page. Since then he's done stints as a developer, a QA engineer, a lab infrastructure manager and infrastructure admin at a now-defunct world-wide ISP. These days he plays the Sysadmin Advocate to software developers who think software is done when they've installed it once in Vagrant.
When not computer geeking Mark geeks on road bicycles. He's been riding road fixed-gear for fun since before that was a thing.
