hi, i’m æva

i’m a queer geek and an open source software developer who drives a bad-ass jeep

i believe that a rising tide lifts all boats, that humans are best at sharing tools, that all religions point to a common truth, and that we all have the potential to be more than what society tells us to be

the political mess that is 2019 inspired me to get loud about what matters – digital privacy, information security, decentralized networks, consent culture, trans rights, and building safer spaces for my communities

you’ll find some of that on this blog, some on twitter & mastodon, and some in my public talks


open source

back in 2012, i started OpenStack Ironic. it’s a cloud – but you get bare metal servers instead of virtual servers! i think that’s funny but i’m a better engineer than comedian … anyway, it’s widely used to manage large fleets of servers, from research centers like CERN to telecoms like Verizon

and before that i did mysql consulting and worked on some projects you might be familiar with
