In my nearly 20 years in the tech industry I’ve been an analyst, programmer, product manager, software engineering manager, director of software engineering, and C-level open source strategy & technical business consultant. I’m the proud winner of the Perl White Camel Award (2014) and the O’Reilly Open Source Award (2016). I am a moderator and author for opensource.com and a frequent speaker at open source conferences and events.

Currently I live in lovely Portland, Oregon with my amazing cats, Percy and Nigel.
