He;;o and welcome!

I’m an open source software developer at heart, and over the years I’ve worn many hats. Right now, I’m busy looking for my next role and surviving the political mess that is 2019.

Stuff I Love

  • offroading & camping in my Jeep!!!
  • collecting odd hobbies, like the shakuhachi
  • eclectic electronic music
  • vidya games
  • yoga & dharma
Pixie Boots – the heavy metal bear!

I used to work full time on OpenStack.

In fact, I started the coolest project!

It’s called Ironic ’cause it gives you a real server when you ask the cloud for a virtual server … I know… who’d ever expect that? It’s great! 😉

Ironic was built because I believe that physical hardware should be managed the same way as any other modern cloud-based infrastructure, even if that hardware lives in your data center (or your closet). It took a few years of hard work, and collaboration from folks all over the world, but we built it with support for the major hardware vendors – and, of course, in addition to proprietary extensions, it supports all the open standards like IPMI and RedFish.

Where will I go on my next adventure? Who knows! Follow me and find out 😉
