I'm a Sales Engineer specializing in DevOps and Software Delivery Automation for the past 10 years. Prior to Sonatype, I was with IBM working with the UrbanCode (DevOps) family of products, and prior to IBM I worked with Red Hat, Hewlett Packard, and Texas Instruments. I seek to understand clients requirements and to craft solutions meeting those needs. I have worked closely with customers across a variety of industries in the United States and Canada. I bring over 25 years of experience in the software industry as a developer, software tester, sales engineer, consultant and business development manager. I have a Computer Science degree from Texas State University. I'm married with two grown daughters who have started their own families! My hobbies include camping and hiking, photography, and playing with Raspberry Pi computers.
