Rackspace From 2011-02-28 (Current)
Statement of Interest

Currently I support... someday, I would like to develop...

[email protected]



I grew up a computer nerd in a neighborhood where it was not cool to be a computer nerd... to get to a better place and progress my life I joined the military. (US Army - Infantry - SGT) During my time in the service I went to college and I picked it back up after I was out eventually earning a Bachelor's Degree in Information System Security from ITT Tech - San Diego. 

Since then I held a handful of jobs at Complex Drive Datacenter, Zix Corporation, General Atomics, and finally Rackspace where I remain. I love being a Racker... the people I work with are motivated, energetic, fun, etc. I've learned so much over the past 5 years and I can't wait to see how much I have learned after 5 more!

At Rackspace I am currently an Openstack Support Engineer and I love it! I get to work with some really cool customers that are pushing the limits of their private cloud environments.
