My professional interests are in the areas of software engineering, building high-performance teams, programming languages, management of engineering organizations, HTTP content delivery, large-scale infrastructure, distributed systems, network virtualization, software-defined networks, IaaS and PaaS. I had the privilege to work with some of the brightest people in this industry at Yahoo!, Microsoft Research and Windows Azure, and Rackspace/OpenStack.

Outside of work I am an avid offshore sailor with interests in performance optimization, marine electronics, navigation and weather routing.
