Multiple software development roles (programmer, data modeler, architect, trainer, PM, BA, manager & director) utilizing mainframe, client/server, distributed, web, e-commerce & big data technologies to develop internal applications & external products coupled with my hands-on "player/coach" leadership style has prepared for me for challenges in the classroom, daily stand-up, the executive boardroom, and everything in between.

After nearly a decade evangelizing & advocating Apache Hadoop, Hive, Spark, NiFi, Kafka, Flink and related open-source big data technologies as a trainer & consultant with Cloudera (originally Hortonworks), I've joined the Starburst team at the beginning of 2022 to do it all over again. This time with products built on top of open-source Trino (formerly PresoSQL) that provide the analytics engine for the modern data lake.
