I am a technical executive, a founder, a consultant, a writer, an international business person, a systems developer, a software construction geek, and a standards diplomat. I love to build teams and products that make customers ecstatic. I have worked in the IT industry since 1980 as both customer and vendor. I have been a Distinguished Technologist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and a consultant working for Docker. I'm a principal program manager in the Microsoft Azure engineering team.
