Operational Delivery of Open Stack within large enterprise environments
Steve's day job with Red Hat is to persuade organisations to spend their IT budgets on Open Source rather than traditional proprietary technologies. With over 20 years experience of Open Source from development to enterprise architecture his passion for Open Source helped bring linux.conf.au to Auckland NZ back in 2015.
In his spare time he still hacks on MythTV and debugging random new bits of hardware that really should know better.
Steven gives regular talks on FOSS as part of his day job at Red Hat, including technology briefings and community meetups.
In addition he's presented at linux.conf.au 2008, OSDC 2008 / 2009 / 2013, Linux World, OSCON, OpenStack Summit Austin 2016 and a regular presenter at the linux.conf.au Sys Admin miniconf.
Currently hold both UK and NZ Passports and able to travel globally.
I've previously spoken at public conferences in NZ, Australia, UK and US, plus many internal Red Hat events across Asia.
