Statement of Interest

To make OpenStack the best it can be.


I was born after the Big Bang, but before the heat death of the universe. Formerly with Piston, now with Cisco, and acutely aware of what it means to run large-scale OpenStack clouds in production environments with enterprise expectations. My background is in the Quality organizations of VMware and Citrix, and before that as a sysadmin managing all kinds of services, hosts, and networks in a number of arenas, including some Distributed Systems labs way back in the 1990s (remember them?) at BBN.
