Senior Staff Cloud Architect for VMware, leading architecture design discussions for hyper-scale cloud providers such as IBM, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and Alibaba. VMware Boomerang adding to the previous 8 year tenure, having spent the past year at AWS, focused on cloud security, migration, EUC, and VMware Cloud on AWS.
It’s not just about what I do, but what I love doing. I love being a trusted advisor to customers, becoming part of the team and helping them build scalable, secure, and resilient architecture meeting their requirements. I have built tools to help customers build and deploy successful solutions such as the VMware Digital Workspace Estimator (formerly Horizon Sizing Tool), and been a major contributor to VMware Flings and GitHub PowerCLI projects.
As a public speaker I have presented over 30 sessions at VMworld US and Europe, VMUG (VMware User Group) in the US, UK, and Netherlands, in addition to regional Tech Summits and online webinars.
