I head up the Product Management and Partner Engineering teams for XenServer at Citrix, spending lots of time talking to customers and engineering teams at OEMs, IHVs ,and ISVs, as well as being responsible for XenServer's OpenStack engineering team. I work in the Cambridge, UK office, having previously spent some time in academia at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. I'm interested in cloud computing, wireless networks, intelligent transport, network virtualisation, Christianity, Spanish, French, Dutch, Finnish, swimming, cycling, and orienteering. Oh, and my wife and I spend lots of time looking after our two small children!
