About Geoff

I am a technology marketer and advisor who is fascinated about the business of technology, and the technology of business. My specialty is cloud infrastructure and how it can be leveraged to build new business models in the platform economy. My background is in technology sales, marketing, business development, partners & alliances, and solution architecture as well as some ongoing entrepreneurial endeavors. My diverse experience has given me a unique perspective on the enterprise and service provider technology ecosystem where now, community, “openness” and APIs are such critical components. I’m interested in how technology impacts business and my speciality is building and marketing highly technical, disruptive products and services.

I’m an advocate of open source technology, having dedicated many years to supporting the adoption of OpenStack and other open source projects. I currently a community ambassador for the Tungsten Fabric community (formally OpenContrail.)
