I disrupt and transform, always with a positive spin. I currently work on transforming how Fortune 500 companies and startups build their software as part of the Cloud Foundry and Spring Framework engineering teams. My passion has always been in performance, distributed systems, scalability and low level system programming. I am also an active member of the Apache Software Foundation where I have been contributing to the Apache Tomcat server since 2000. I never stop learning and the older I get the more I know about what I don't know. It is one of the reasons I love to share information and present always deconstructing complex technologies into easy to understand segments for everyone to enjoy.
