I love making, understanding & explaining code
My background and core competence is systems software engineering, but I love the whole process of building products. I've been in startups that have succeeded and others that have failed. I enjoy writing code, and understanding how other people will use it.
I'm the technology evangelist with container security specialists Aqua Security, where I also look after our open source projects, and I'm chair of the CNCF's Technical Oversight Committee. I co-chaired the KubeCon / CloudNativeCon 2018 events in Copenhagen, Shanghai and Seattle, and co-authored a book on Kubernetes Security for O'Reilly, with Michael Hausenblas.
Away from my desk
When I'm not working you'll quite likely find me on a bike (in real life or racing on Zwift), at a gig, eating & drinking with friends, doing yoga or drumming. I'm a mediocre drummer at best, but it's fun!
Where I get over my British reserve and admit that I'm pretty good at these
I spent the first, well, many years of my professional life writing and architecting portable network stack implementations. I love and understand how to make clean, well-architected code.
Containers, Kubernetes and security
I've been working with containers for several years. I'm a fan of Kubernetes and, since joining Aqua, I've learned a thing or two about the security aspects of using containers and distributed systems.
