Statement of Interest

Architecture and development


I'm a 42-year-old husband, father and technologist. I have lived most of my life in downtown Atlanta, but I now reside on an 11-acre sustainable family farm 1 hour north of the city.

My background includes 24 years of IT experience, 2 technical degrees, and 27 industry certifications. I am currently a Consulting Systems Engineer at Cisco and am pursuing my MIS degree at Georgia Tech. I have been working with OpenStack since the Essex release, have been involved with the last 5 OpenStack conferences and have spoken or taught at 4 of these.

I am a veteran technologist with experience ranging from Naval Intelligence, freelance consulting, start-up co-founder, and a decade of professional services with Dell. My focus has been on cloud technology for the last 3 years beginning with Crowbar at Dell in 2011, Fuel at Mirantis and now RPC at Rackspace. I am competent with Ruby, Python, Perl, BASH, and Java, but my greatest strengths are as a cross-discipline infrastructure architect designing and deploying complex OpenStack-based solutions and supporting sales, product and operations teams.
