You can contact me at and tell me how much you admire my advanced HTML abilities.



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, which turned into more startup excitement afterwards.

I am the proud recipient of a bachelor's degree in EECS from Berkeley ('92).
