About me...

In a nutshell, I'm a software engineer, open source evangelist and a bit of an IT security freak. I was recently featured in the Top 50 Most Powerful Voices in Open Source.

Projects I am involved in:

  • TurnKey Linux is an open source project developing a virtual appliance library that integrates and polishes the very best open source software into ready to use solutions. Each virtual appliance is optimized for ease of use and can be deployed in just a few minutes on bare metal, a virtual machine and in the cloud.

    Packaging a solution as a virtual appliance can be incredibly useful because it allows you to leverage guru integration skills to build ready to use systems (I.e., turn key solutions) that just work out of the box with little to no setup.

  • TurnKey Hub provides fully automated backup/restore, testing backups in the cloud, migrating working servers anywhere is minutes. It's also the easiest way to deploy applications in the Amazon EC2 cloud (more clouds and VPS providers on the way).

  • Ubuntu is the fastest growing Linux distribution (based on Debian) with millions of users adopting it world wide. Ubuntu is an African word meaning "Humanity to others", or "I am what I am because of who we all are".
