Bio

Vice President and CTO of Cloud Computing at Cisco Systems where I am responsible for shaping Cisco's strategy and products in cloud computing.  I also run the OpenStack team at Cisco contributing to Neutron, Nova, Horizon, and other projects and currently sit on the Foundation Board as a Gold representative.  I frequently talk about cloud computing, software defined networking, and OpenStack at major conferences.  Of course, I'd rather be playing music or writing code. 

Formerly, I was VP/CTO Cloud Computing at Sun Microsystems, where I led development of SunCloud.  Earlier at Sun I was responsible for all of Sun's Internet-facing web sites and services, and was an early member of the JavaSoft executive team.  At other points in my career, at Salesforce.com I led the development of the AppExchange, and was CTO at Radar Networks, a semantic web startup.  In the 1980's I was a director of R&D at Thinking Machines, where I developed algorithms for AI and machine vision for the massively parallel Connection Machine.   I have a B.S. from Cornell University and Ph.D. in computer science from Polytechnic Institute of New York.
