I run a professional services organization. Consulting and training on the OpenStack platform is a core part of our business. As such we we want to contribute to the development of OpenStack as a platform for cloud computing and data center consolidation.
I run the Professional Services & Education BU at City Network, and help people learn to use, understand, and deploy OpenStack. I've worked exclusively with open source software since about 2002, and have been involved in OpenStack since early 2012. I co-founded hastexo, a professional services company specializing in OpenStack, Ceph, and Open edX. There I served as CEO and Principal Consultant until our acquisition by City Network in October 2017. I have presented at several OpenStack Summits and numerous other conferences and meetups.
I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: Ansible Playbooks for OpenStack (OpenStackAnsible)
