You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and
tell me how much you admire my advanced HTML abilities. I also
wordpress things sometimes (where "sometimes" means "not recently").
- I became a committer on Apache
Hive as part of my work at Facebook, and was later made
PMC chair of that project.
- One of my Hive projects involved integration
with Apache HBase.
- I was the project founder
for LucidDB, an open source
column store DBMS developed at an earlier startup (LucidEra).
- In the past I served on the board of directors
for Eigenbase, a non profit behind some of the open source DBMS frameworks used by LucidDB and other projects.
- I contributed to the Mondrian
open source OLAP engine.
- I am the project administrator
for JGraphT, a Java library of
graph theory data structures and algorithms.
As you can probably tell, I really like open source development,
and I enjoy collaborating with people from a variety of different
projects both inside and outside Apache. My background is in DBMS
internals, and I've been involved with a number of startups throughout
my career. At Facebook, I nearly drowned in massive data volumes, but
in the process learned a lot more about the problems
of analytical data processing at petabyte scale. Afterwards, I did a
lot of traveling around the world; not coincidentally, I'm currently
helping to cofound a startup in that area.
I am the proud recipient of a bachelor's degree in EECS from Berkeley ('92).
