About me

Like many open source enthusiasts, my journey began 20 years ago with Mozilla and Wikipedia. Perl and Linux followed shortly after, contributing to Debian Project since 2004.

I focused on building communities, advised large migrations, debated standards, built teams and architected open source-based solutions using the Linux operating system across the globe.

I've been part of Microsoft's open source journey since joined 2010. Before Microsoft, I helped expand an open source consulting firm as CTO, was member of the technical staff at an electric utility and led many large scale projects as a consultant.

At Microsoft, I've been fortunate to be part of the many public launches and announcements related to Linux and open source in recent history, and the many more internal shifts through my work in cultural, business, readiness and technical initiatives from Redmond to Tel Aviv, Bangalore or Paris.

I'm based in Seattle. My personal opinions don't represent the position of any current or past organizations or employers.
