Website | Attendee Directory Profile

My current job is a developer at Sun Microsystems. I am working on Open HA Cluster agents.

Before I joined Sun, I was working as a developer and system/database administrator for about 19 years.

At Sun I was working first as a consultant for high availability and performance tuning. During this time one of my duties was to create and enhance field created Sun Cluster agents, and deliver these agents to Sun Cluster engineering. I joined Sun Cluster engineering on behalf of this duty. Currently one of my responsibilities is the Open HA Cluster integration for MySQL.

I am married and the father of two teenage daughters.

My main hobby is cycling and traveling by bicycle.
