OpenStack Profile Twitter Profile

I am a software developer focused on OpenStack's Identity program. I am passionate about open-source software and sharing knowledge. I constantly look for ways to improve the performance and scalability of whatever project I'm work on. When I'm not writing or reviewing code I enjoy cooking and tackling restoration projects with my wife.
