I’ve maintained a blog (on and off) since 2005. This is the second home of my weblog – the first – maintained by My previous employer (Sun Microsystems) is hopefully still here.
I’m a dual national (US and UK) currently living in North Carolina – after 6 years in California. As well as the US and England – I’ve lived in Malta and Cyprus and have travelled a fair bit in between.
I usually describe myself as a “recovering engineer” and currently work for Red Hat managing the JBoss Application Platform products. I’ve worked in the software business for more than 20 years – more than half of that time as a developer / consultant. My professional profile is kept reasonably up to date on LinkedIn and you can follow me in 140 characters or less.
I’m interested in virtually any activity that involves getting outdoors. I’m also deeply interested in technology – specific interests right now – Internet of Things, Personal Health, Immutable Infrastructure and Web Scale software architectures.
