Hi everyone! My name is Zac (no h) Clifton, and I am 25 years old. I live in southern Indiana just a-crossed the river from Louisville Kentucky in the United States where I was born and raised.
I grew up on a small farm where I did the usual farm tasks. I originally wanted to be an architect or a chemist but both where too rigid and not creative enough to satisfy my need. However, after taking 1 course on coding in python I was hooked. After learning the ropes, I soon became the president of the Computer Science Group (CSG) and over 3 years sourced and built a Hyper-converged Data Center with the help of the department.
During this time, I started an internship at Louisville Gas & Electric where I eventually got hired as a Enterprise Architect and Platform Engineer. While there I assisted in reviewing new tools, creating automatons and integrations, and building the Kubernetes deployment files for the platform written in java on top of Micronaut.
Currently, I am spending most of my spare time building our side business however, when I do get the chance I love to go fly. Flying has been my top bucket list item since I was very young. When I first got hired on at LGE as an intern I had enough money to fly one every two weeks and I did this for 3 years until September, 2021 when I finally got my private pilot license. In the long term, I want to own small plane so I can go up any time I want and do Aerobatics.
My favorite place in the world is Dolan's pub limerick, Ireland. We went there on our recent trip to Europe and I could not get over how great the community was there and how great the live music was. I definitely want to go back there at least one more time before I pass.
I am not a big movie person but my favorite is O Brother, Where Art Thou.

My Favorite music is Jazz, Fusion, Techno, and Classical genres. I am very picky about the songs I like but I always work to have an open mind. https://open.spotify.com/album/1KSOL1jvue2lfcdsNZ7YN8?si=N71tcYGJQHy2B7avWkxULA
