Statement of Interest

I am a lawyer in the Cloud and Open Source group at HP, with special responsibility for open source strategy and counseling Cloud BU engineering, and as such a significant amount of my work relates directly and indirectly to OpenStack. I was previously a lawyer at Red Hat where I advised developers on matters relating to OpenStack and represented Red Hat on the OpenStack Foundation Legal Affairs Committee. I am generally interested in promoting the success of OpenStack as a meritocratic open source community project. In 2012 I served on the drafting committee for the OpenStack Foundation governance documents on behalf of Red Hat.
