Bio

I head up VMware's OpenStack efforts across compute, network, storage.  I came to VMware via Nicira, the company behind Open vSwitch and as part of that effort I help start and was the PTL of the OpenStack Networking Project (Neutron).  During that time, I was a core developer on OpenStack Neutron and also made significant contributions to Nova, Docs, and Devstack.    

During this time, I've spent countless hours not only developing and troubleshooting OpenStack deployments (both in-house and at customers) but also educating customers about how they can deploy OpenStack to help solve their cloud challenges.  

I also served on the OpenStack Technical Committee during this time, and have a lot of experience working closely with the folks who "keep the lights on" from a technical + infrastructure perspective.

Outside of work, I enjoy trail running, and brewing/drinking beer.   


 


Projects
