I'm a senior principal software engineer with 30 years of experience. I became familiar with OpenStack while working on Crowbar, a tool for deploying OpenStack to baremetal.  My focus is on the Dell EMC Ironic iDRAC driver and I work to extend it's capabilities and transition it from using the WSMAN protocol to Redfish.

I also have extensive experience deploying OpenStack using TripleO and troubleshooting failed deployments.
