Statement of Interest

Development, Operator



Ken started his early career as a software engineer in the early days of the Internet, for Chicago's largest ISP -- InterAccess. Before moving to Austin TX in 2003, Ken co-authored the book "Peter Norton's Complete Guide to Linux", which specifically highlighted Red Hat Linux.
After having worked as a developer for various local Austin companies, Ken finally landed at Rackspace in 2006. This would be the beginning of a nine-year journey that saw the creation of OpenStack and found Ken in positions as a developer, an architect and finally as an engineer leading the OpenStack Keystone/Cloud Identity team at Rackspace.
Ken currently works for Red Hat, as a Senior OpenStack Architect, in what is a longtime dream to work for a truly open company.
