Statement of Interest

As the Lead for Lenovo's Cloud Storage I wish to further OpenStack's adoption by industry.




I served as the IBM Subject Matter Expert (SME) for Cinder from early January 2014 until January of 2017.  As the Cinder SME I earned Cinder Core status during the first half of 2014.  I also took the opportunity to be Cinder's Oslo Liaison.  Two roles which I continue to fill today.

In January of 2017, I took the opportunity to act of the Cloud Storage Lead for Lenovo's Cloud Technology Center.  In this new role I am working to develop Lenovo's storage offerings and how they can best integrate with OpenStack.  Through this new role I am working to increase Lenovo's presence in the OpenStack community and looking to continue to enhance enterprise adoption of OpenStack as a cloud solution.



I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: Object Store (Swift),Block Storage (Cinder)
