Statement of Interest

I run the OpenStack Development Infrastructure


Monty currently leads the team that works on the Zuul project for CI/CD in Red Hat's CTO Office. He's the founder, core member and past PTL of the OpenStack Infra team which runs CI and developer tooling for OpenStack. He's a member of the OpenStack Foundation Board of Directors, a Python Fellow and past member the OpenStack Technical Committee. Monty is the PTL of the openstacksdk project and is the maintainer of the Ansible modules for consuming OpenStack. Before his OpenStack days he was a core developer on Drizzle and was a Senior Consultant for MySQL, Inc.

Monty has a degree in Theatre Directing and went to grad school at CalArts in lighting design. The intersection of fields has led him to start more than one business around developing technology for and related to live performance. Recently Monty served as an Adjunct Professor at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts teaching a class on programming related to lighting design. If you let him, he'll talk to you WAY too much about Scuba Diving.
