About me

I work for Rackspace as the Chief Security Architect, but my roots are in system administration, virtualization, and software development. I enjoy teaching and tinkering with servers, networking equipment and Android phones. My previous work was on Rackspace's Cloud Servers product from Slicehost's acquisition to the launch of the OpenStack platform.

Why I Like Fedora

  • Welcoming and friendly community
  • Closer to the bleeding edge
  • Strong support from users and developers
