Originaly from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida I currently live with my wife and family in San Jose, California where we have called home for just under 3 years. As a cloud architect and engineer for Cloudscaling, I work with customers to deploy private and public clouds at massive proudction scale. Cloudscaling is one of the leading OpenStack product companies and I am both proud and excited to be involved with such a great team of people who are disrupting the market and delivering an awesome solution.
In addition to my work with Cloudscaling, I am also very actively involved in the Bay Area OpenStack community where we have worked to help deliver community driven training materials and programs through the OpenStack documentation site. You can sometimes find me at local cloud related events and meetups around the Bay Area and I never turn down an opportunity to meet up for a beer.
I am also a musician, a juggler, a chef, an athlete, a husband, a geek, a dad, a fire dancer, a vegan and often somewhat silly.
I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: Nova,Swift,Glance,Keystone,Horizon,Quantum,Cinder,Heat,Ironic,Openstack-ci,Openstack-manuals
