Having worked with many cloud native projects and advocated for DevOps & DevRel practices both within my professional and opensource career, I am excited to continue to help others to find success with CNCF as a pivotal community to do so.

I've worked the last decade within software engineering at Microsoft, BSkyB, Blinkbox, American express to name a few - working on projects such as high volume mobile streaming, Kubernetes federation across regions (including Russia) and optimised XDS within a Golang control plane for Envoy. Some career highlights are working on XBoxOne/Epic (Unreal) network layer test architecture, SkyGo iOS mobile App and high TPS HRTech integration with Amazon.

Professionally my interests are around coordinating the frog-leaps in technological advancements into a way that best services developer experience. Packaging the potential of CNCF projects into a consumable/low-entry-bar offering that can help to adopt new and existing developers, encouraging them to contribute back and further proliferate a vendor-neutral ecosystem that empowers us all.

I live in the countryside south of London with my wife and son, I enjoy hobbyist electronics, cooking, gardening, science-fiction (or speculative future if optimistic) and Yoga.
