About me

I work for Rackspace as a Principal Architect and my roots are in system administration, virtualization, and software development. I enjoy teaching and tinkering with servers, networking equipment and Android phones.

Much of my current focus at work is around deploying OpenStack on x86 and PPC systems using Ansible.

Fedora

I maintain a few Fedora packages and I'm on the Fedora Security Team. A bunch of my Fedora-related blog posts are up on Fedora Planet and you can learn how I use Fedora in the Fedora magazine. Serving on the Fedora board was an awesome experience!
