What is your relationship to OpenStack, and why is its success important to you? What would you say is your biggest contribution to OpenStack's success to date?

Continued adoption and progress of Openstack is important for providing a common open cloud software solution. My greatest contribution to OpenStack is guiding Horizon through a period of tremendous growth and helping evolve Horizon to be a viable user interface for a wide range of OpenStack deployments.

What do you see as the Board's role in OpenStack's success?


The Board's role is providing an atmosphere where developers, deployers and operators can work together to deliver on the promise of open cloud software while supporting an ecosystem that meets the needs of both commercial and private entities.
