End User, Reviewer, and Contributor/Developer
I began my OpenStack experience as an OpenStack Support Engineer, focused on succeeding technically while providing excellent service and support. Since initially engaging with OpenStack, I became extremely passionate about its success in every market across the globe. In just under two years I succeeded in creating an OpenStack Meetup in Houston, TX, becoming one of the leaders of the Ops Meetups Team, and leading the reboot of the OSOps Project.
As the technical lead for the OpenStack Innovation Center's DevOps team I have the privilege to work with some of the top contributors and thinkers in the OpenStack ecosystem. Additionally I am able to work with community operators, application developers, and end users as a member of the OpenStack User Committee.
I live in the great city of Houston, TX with my awesome family and enjoy spending most of my time learning more about the information and technology field from innovations in microprocessing, changes in DataCenter infrastructure, to the latest trends in Cloud Computing.
