Portrait of Brandon

Hi, I'm Brandon.

I'm a software developer working for
Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

About

I'm Brandon Harrison. I was born in Dallas, Texas, went to school in Austin, and I now live a slightly more vertical life in Fort Collins, Colorado. I work for Hewlett Packard Enterprise as a DevOps Infrastructure Automation Engineer. I spend a lot of time tinkering around with my Linux machines and automating anything that takes longer than 30 seconds. In my freetime I backpack, woodwork, homebrew, rock climb, and ski whenever the mountains are a little frosty.
