Bio

As VP/CTO of Cloud Computing at Cisco Systems I am responsible for shaping Cisco's strategy and products in cloud computing and represent Cisco on the OpenStack Foundation board of director.  Cisco is a major contributor to OpenStack across multiple projects including: Neutron, Nova, Horizon, Kolla, Magnum and others. I am a frequent invited speaker at major conferences on cloud computing and open source.

Formerly, I was VP/CTO Cloud Computing at Sun Microsystems, where I led development of SunCloud, 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 New York University.
