Hi, I'm Termie, you may remember me from the early days of Nova (now Nova, Cinder, Neutron...), OpenStack-Dashboard (now Horizon), Keystone-Lite (now Keystone). I'm one of the guys who helped start this Openstack thing. 

I'm a programmer with a bunch of experience in a bunch of areas. I am well-respected for my opinions on most things technical, though sometimes you may get tired of hearing them. I am generally outspoken.

I've had a string of successes based on my work (and obviously the work of others), of which OpenStack is the latest, and I want to see it through to ever more greatness.

I am a radical stickler for code quality, I've introduced code review to many teams and projects, driven test framework usage and development, and I believe a clean and well-organized codebase is a prerequisite for longevity of a project.
