In addition to engaging with customers and press, I present at Industry leading events to drive awareness and excitement about what we are doing at VMware.

Currently, I am a Senior Staff Architect at VMware R&D, developing and communicating VMware’s technical marketing strategy of VMware Cloud on AWS. Previously I was the Chief Technologist at PernixData; a company focused on delivering next-level storage solutions for the VMware ecosystem. In the first decade of my career, I was an Architect designing virtual infrastructures for many Fortune 500 companies.
