Who I am…
I am a Staff Cloud Solutions Architect at VMware with a deep focus on End-User Computing (EUC) and core virtualization technologies. I am proud to be an Ambassador to the Office of the CTO, awarded vExpert each year since 2011 including vExpert-Cloud 2017. I am a Double VCDX #122 (Desktop & Data Center Virtualization) certification holder and an active panelist. http://vcdx.vmware.com
I’m passionate about technology. I’m a PC gamer. Not just a gamer, but a PC GAMER! Since I made my first sprite on a Commodore 64 and learning machine code at 8 years old, to working at VMware. What a wonderful time to be alive!
What I do
I maintain a deep knowledge of VMware products, especially focused on End-User Computing. By working with our Cloud Providers as part of the Global Cloud Practice at VMware, I help deliver architecture best practices, designs and solutions to new cloud service offerings.
I created the original Horizon Sizing Estimator, now called the Digital Workspace Estimator (http://vmware.com/go/horizoncalc), and continue as a major contributor to End-User Computing (EUC) technical publications. My most download publication is the Horizon 7 Network Ports diagram!
As a public speaker I have presented at VMworld US and Europe, VMUG (VMware User Group) in the US, UK and Netherlands, and I continue delivering sessions at other industry events across the globe. Most recently I was invited to present VMware Cloud Services at the Virtustream Global Developers Conference.
