Tom serves as PTL for the OpenStack Manila project and is employed by Red Hat.
He started late in the Juno release, working at first on NetApp Cinder drivers, and then moving on to work on core Cinder code, especially the Cinder backup service. Starting around the mitaka cycle, he began working primarily on Manila but he maintains a keen interest in sharing solutions between the two projects.
Tom has worked as a developer and as a deployer of a variety of storage and network technologies over the course of his career and really enjoys the chance to apply this experience working on open source, especially a project with the reach and impact of OpenStack.
