I started my IT career as a customer. It was great having complete ownership of the environment but eventually I wanted more. I moved to the partner side and the past five years have been amazing. I have worked with more environments than I can count. It exposed me to diverse technical and operational challenges. It gave me the opportunity to see first hand past the marketing what worked and what did not work. I would like to thank everyone (customers, co-workers) and all of the people who I was able to directly work with who helped me reach this point in my career. I also want to thank people who freely share to the greater community. Their blogs, their words of caution, their advice, their presentations at conferences all contributed in helping me succeed. I will miss the amazing team at Synchronet but it was time for change.
Starting today, I will be in a new role at VMware in Technical Marketing for VMware VSAN. I am excited for this change, and look forward to the challenges ahead. In this position I hope to learn and give back to the greater community that has helped me reach this point. I will still blog various musings here, but look for VSAN and storage content at Virtual Blocks.
I look forward to the road ahead!
