An impassioned autodidact in technology, Naomi has almost 20 years' system administration experience, stretching back to the days of Windows NT. Quickly, she discovered Linux, first installing Debian via floppy disk, and eventually switching to Red Hat. What started as a novelty quickly became her OS of choice to back several projects in her position as system administrator in support of research.
In her more than 15 years of administering Linux systems, she has mastered virtualization technologies, automation techniques, and most recently has become fascinated by and works with high performance computing systems.
In addition to technology, Naomi enjoys cycling, coffee, comics, and cats.
