About me

Hi!

My name is Stephen. I'm a DevOps Engineer. I'm from Dublin, Ireland although I am currently based out of Toronto, Canada.

Unsurprisingly, I have a great interest in technology. However, I'm also a sports enthusiast. Football and martial arts are my favourite among many.

Some of my other interests are travel, books and podcasts. I'm always open to recommendations!

Contact

If you want to contact me regarding an opportunity, please DM me on LinkedIn.

However, given the high volume of contact I receive regarding potential opportunities, I can only respond to those that I find appealing and receive at a time when I'm looking for a new challenge.

Also, it's worth noting that I am willing to consider relocating providing the prospective employer and myself can obtain the necessary visa/permit requirements.
