At 15 I’m regularly skipping high school to put in more hours as a “chicken genius”.. until they (school) kicked me out.
25 years later, I am at VMware solving interesting problems and helping build products at VMware (a regular in “best places to work” lists).
In-between I was worked with a small MSP helping administer the global monitoring systems. I spent many half day shifts troubleshooting datacenter and financial networks. I was the first network guy in Americas supporting converged infrastructure platform escalations (the VCE Vblock). This eventually lead me to VMware to work on the early software-defined clouds, and ultimately with HCX, which provides a consistent workload and network mobility experience and allows customers realize the benefits of their VMware investments.
Somewhere along the line I got married we grew to a family of 8! My wife is my best friend. She is a scientist (PhD/Geologist) currently pursuing law. This incredible wife and our six kids are my favorite chaos.
