Bio

It's hard to define myself, I would say that I'm a consultant. I came from the field and from the early stages of Linux, even if I contributed to many opensource projects.

HP rates me among the global top 30 OpenStack consultant and even mentioned in Forrester Research OpenStack whitepaper “OpenStack is ready, are you?". I’ve been working in the past as an IT Architect and Security Expert for Canonical/Ubuntu, RedHat, Sun Microsystems and IBM and  named Visiting Researcher at the University of Dublin Trinity College ad-honorem.

As I’ve spent my last 22+ years in OpenSource, I had the privilege of working with the best people in the industry. This is the reason why I’ve got great relationships with HP, RedHat, SUSE, Ubuntu, Dell, Intel, Fortinet and many many others. I wrote many whitepapers and books and my latest one “OpenStack explained” helped collecting funds to help the population in Nepal after the earthquake.

I’ve been working in super-exciting field projects: creating the standard for J2ME Over-The-Air (OTA) provisioning along with Vodafone, the study of architecture and standards for the delivery of MHP applications for the digital terrestrial television (DTT) on behalf of DTT Lab and implementation of HLR for Vodafone landline services. Not mentioning the most cited OpenStack installations in telco and finance.

My aim is to bring in connection the board of director with the real world of enterprises, service providers, outsourcers and system integrators.

On my private I’m still a geek enjoying testing and being part of the OpenSource world. I’d like to transmit data in any mean, that’s why I’m a radioamateur. I’m also a chef with passion of baking and a leisure pilot on the weekends :-)
