Cloud Solution Architect, Rackspace
I'm a Cloud Solutions Architect at Rackspace with a heavy focus on automation of the infrastructure and the DevOps philosophy. My background was as a Unix Administrator but my focus in automation came about during my work with Opsware (now HP Server Automation) as a Professional Services Consultant. From there I worked at WebMD as an Automation Engineer and learned the gospel of Open Source tools like Chef/Puppet and the ideas of DevOps.
