Hello 👋
My next available slot is

  • Thursday 30th Dec9:00 PM (GMT)

My passion is helping people, and technology, product management, and servant leadership are my tools for making my team members' and users' lives better. I am responsible and accountable for the overall development of all aspects of InMotion Hosting's Flex Metal Cloud on-demand OpenStack private cloud platform. I started out in technology as a hobbyist teaching myself Python programming to solve problems I had as a hotel front desk agent. I made the leap into technology professionally as an entry-level technical support agent, taught myself to be a full stack developer with a focus on JavaScript, and graduated from developing my own products and tools individually to leading a team of highly skilled and motivated professionals creating the next generation open source cloud platform they want to use for the awesome things they want to build.
