Hey I'm Logan. I'm a technologist, architect, and consultant with 10 years of experience in IT. I've spent my career supporting Fortune 50 companies with Technology Administration, Operations, & Strategy. I hold various vendor-specific certifications for SaaS and Cloud solutions, as well as TOGAF and ITIL v4. While complex, strategic projects pay the bills, I can't help but love to get my hands dirty with everyday IT issues. I'm no engineer, however, like many IT folks, I find myself in frequent situations where I'm having to cobble together a script from Stack Overflow or Github to automate something, integrate something, pull some data, etc. I have a passion for SaaS applications, and wanted to use this as a forum to share all of the random but useful skills I've picked up over the years, and hopefully, save at least a few people some time in their day!
