Advisory

Advisory

I like to make time for side projects where I can add value and that allow me to grow and learn as a technology and business professional. As an advisor I describe myself as a cloud infrastructure specialist with a deep understanding of the technology landscape. My specialty is building and marketing highly technical infrastructure products, solutions and services to enterprises and service providers.

If you would like to discuss a project with me, please send me an email

Companies

Here is a list of organizations who I actively advise for or am involved with in some capacity:

Ammeris

Born from a Canadian, clean-energy, and decentralized mindset, Ammeris has been founded by a group of entrepreneurs, technologists, and financiers that are passionate about sustainable solutions to interoperability and trust issues, determined to illuminate a path forward using blockchain and wider decentralized technologies. I am currently a technology advisor for Ammeris where I am supporting their Green Data Centre and Blockchain-focused platform-as-a-service.

Our entire project felt a lift when Geoff began advising Ammeris, and it really seemed like a lot of our vision started becoming integrated with real world possibilities. Not only in bringing advanced understanding of our infrastructure and connectivity needs, but presenting them to diverse audiences in a way that we could build with and begin to implement.

Tungsten Fabric

I am the Toronto ambassador for Tungsten Fabric, an open source multicloud, multistack SDN project, where my responsibility is to help to make Tungsten Fabric local to you. I speak at local events like Meetups, tour some project technology, and help out locally with the community. Reach out to me to learn more about the Tungsten Fabric community.

Cloud-A

Cloud-A is a Canadian Infrastructure-as-a-service pioneer, and the first Canadian company to build and operate a public cloud built with OpenStack. Their mission is to disrupt how IT infrastructure is consumed, making it simpler to understand and manage so that your team is more productive. They do that by increasing visibility, insight, and the manageability of it. I actively advise Cloud-A on business and technology related matters.

The Crypto Noob Club

I am the co-founder of The Crypto Noob Club, a blockchain mining cooperative created for beginners. The club was built by blockchain and cryptocurrency enthusiasts to share information and ease the complexity associated with trading, mining, and vetting crypto projects. We believe in the long term mainstream adoption of blockchain technologies and we are trying to do our part in educating the next wave of blockchain asset investors and making investing accessible.
