I am a Solutions Engineer (Pre-Sales Engineer) for Alfresco, an Open Source Software start-up, which develops Enterprise Content Management Software.
Prior to working for Alfresco, I was a Software QA Engineer at Novell. I worked on the OES Integration Test Team as the Linux Technical Lead , QA testing components and features of Netware, OES 1 and 2 and SLES 10. I covered storage aspects of those products (Netware: Hardlinks, NFS APIs, Byte Range and Cross-Protocol Byte Range Locks, OPLocks; OES Linux: NSS Hardlinks, NSS NFS APIs, NSS VFS, NSS xAttr; SLES10: Mulitpath and Storage Management). I also worked on install, configuration, virtualization with XEN, LUM (Linux User Management), Patching and Updates, and Dynamic Storage Technologies (Shadow Volumes).
I am a workaholic and a father of five (soon to be six!). I keep reminding myself that I need to get a hobby outside of a computer. (My wife says I have two wives, her and my laptop.)
I like to play chess and go. I enjoy music and learning new things (why does this sound like a personal ad?)
In a previous life I worked as a J2EE Developer/ Architect for the US 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, Louisiana. While employed by the Federal Courts I also worked as Internet Administrator for about 50+ different Federal Courts (a service we provided), on the Help Desk and as a PC Technician.

I am here to hopefully get a chance to socialize with some peers. I have been programming, and using Linux for my primary workstation's operating system since 1996, and I'm curious to learn more. I hope to have that opportunity here.
