I am a Senior Kubernetes Architect at VMware. I was an early adopter of Docker and Kubernetes and have spent the past few years helping enterprises adopt cloud native technology.


In a previous life I was a python application developer. In 2015, I found myself in a DevOps role and began leveraging Docker. I went to production with Docker before it was wise to do so and learned a lot of valuable lessons that led me to Kubernetes for container orchestration. By the end of 2016, I was running production workloads on Kubernetes. That led me to the Field Engineering teams at CoreOS and then Heptio where I helped enterprises adopt Kubernetes and cloud naive technology. Since VMware acquired Heptio, I've been doing the same on the Kubernetes Architect Team. When I'm not issuing kubectl commands, I spend as much quality time as I can with my wife and four children.
