My name is Scott Johnson. I was born in California, grew up in Tennessee, lived in Louisville KY, Seattle WA, now back home in Nashville TN.
I am a Sr. Application Operations Analyst for Deloitte. I work on a team that deploys upgrades and fixes for applications, primarily enterprise content management systems and web apps. Everyday I’m working with WebLogic, IIS and SQL across all environments in the development life cycle. I’ve been doing Application Administration and Systems Analyst work since 2008.
My first computer was a Tandy 1000, first video game system was an Intellivision, first car was a maroon 1986 GMC Safari minivan, and current phone is an iPhone 4S. I love action movies, dramatic TV, adventure sci-fi novels, role playing video games, and strategy board games. I despise cheap plastic playing cards, hoppy tasting IPAs, and the chipmunks who dig up my vegetable garden. I deeply love simplicity, my amazing family, and my close knit group of friends. And good ice cream.
