Hello.

Kevin M. Gallagher

My name is Kevin Michael Gallagher.

I’m a professional Linux Systems Administrator slash DevOps + Full-Stack + Site Reliability + Security Engineer, plus an activist committed to privacy, security and freedom of information. I enjoy literature, music, and film in my free time.
