BiographyI'm the project lead for the WildFly application server project and lead architect for JBoss EAP.
I started working on JBoss AS in 2003 and joined the company in 2005. I was the AS clustering lead for the JBoss AS 5 and 6 releases, and then took over as lead for AS management functionality early in the AS 7 days. Starting in 2017 I started doing a lot of work related to running WildFly and EAP on OpenShift.
My background is in International Business and East Asian Studies, with a B.A. from Michigan State and an M.A. from Stanford. Before getting bitten by the software bug, I had a successful career in corporate finance in the semiconductor industry. Part of that oddly enough involved web application and other types of software development. But since I realized in the late 1990s that my true interest was in software, not finance, I've focused on server-side development and Java.
My other main interests are China (I speak Mandarin Chinese and visit China regularly) and hanging out with my family. I live in St. Louis, MO.
