I have been passionate about networking for years. I took interest in the OpenStack Quantum project some time ago and joined HP to have an opportunity to contribute to this awesome technology.
Carl Baldwin is a regular contributor Openstack's Neutron project and has been a core reviewer since 2014. He leads the Neutron L3 sub team. He started his career developing electronic design automation software with HP’s microprocessor design projects: PA-RISC and Itanium. Years later, he spent a short time on a few of HP's network attached storage products. He was drawn to computer networking. He would consistently step outside his purview to weigh in on office networking issues as well as to provide expertise to the network design in the products. In January, 2013, he found his opportunity to move to his dream roll at HP. By shear luck, he got the sudden opportunity to personally meet HP's new Neutron team in Fort Collins. He soon hired on to the team and has been enjoying it ever since. He is fascinated by network virtualization in the cloud.
Carl lives in Fort Collins, Colorado with his wife Emily, two daughters, and a son. He loves to run, hike, swim, mountain bike, and plays disc golf and volleyball. Otherwise, his hobbies look a lot like his work: writing software and tinkering with networking.
