Hello, I’m Jesse B. Crawford.

I'm a DevOps engineer et cetera in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I'm interested in security, computer history, transportation and infrastructure technology, and in general more things than I can list. I blog at Computers Are Bad and operate waffle.tech. You can get in touch or read my resume, and I also write essays and collect all kinds of information related to my interests.

I've worked as a system administrator, a security analyst, and occasionally even as a software engineer. Currently, I'm working as a DevOps engineer for Twistle. I'm very interested in security, cloud systems, and project management for IT and software projects.

I'm particularly interested in training and education at the K-12 and professional levels, and take almost every opportunity to speak before large and small groups about computer history and other topics. I'm also an amateur radio hobbyist and an avid fan of the endless desert.

I grew up in Portland, Oregon, and have spent my adult life in New Mexico, with various periods in San Francisco and Virginia. I'm not sure there's anywhere in the country I dislike, but of all the places I like, I like the southwest the most. As often as possible, I road trip across the rest of the country, sometimes taking photos along the way. Mostly photos of trains, though.
