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 Office of Technology. He's the founder, core member and past PTL of the OpenStack Infra team which runs CI and developer tooling for OpenStack. He's also on the OpenStack Technical Committee and was on the OpenStack Foundation Board of Directors from 2012-2016. Monty is also the PTL of the shade project and 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 me 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.



I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: Keystone,Openstack-ci
