You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Linux • Cloud Computing • Databases • Distributed Systems • Virtualization

Key Accomplishments

People say I\'m an unusual problem solver. I have the ability to take a problem, and propose solutions that are rather unconventional.

How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I like to have 1-2 initial meetings, to "sniff each other out", and then decide if a deeper, more frequest relationship makes sense.
I don't mind doing it remotely, but I strongly prefer in-person interaction (I am based in San Francisco, and frequently travel to New York).
I like to help, even if that means challenging your ideas. I do it to learn, not for the money, and therefore I appreciate respect for my time and advice.
