I like to keep it real simple here (no JS), so please see my actual work for the pretty eye candy.
I'm into computers and love writing code to solve interesting problems, so much so I got a Ph.D. in Computer Science. I like it even better when people pay me to do it - IBM did for 13 years, but now that I'm a free-agent I dont need to waste a lot of time writing PowerPoint presentations for upper management, and can concentrate on solving those interesting problems instead. My first computer was a 1st-gen NeXTcube; now I'm focusing on mobile technologies and associated webservices (but I kept the 'cube).
Most of my code written at IBM was for systems management and virtualization, and is open source. A lot of it ships today in the Linux OS.
- sfcb, Small Footprint CIM Broker (core developer)
- SBLIM, Standards Based Linux Instrumentation for Manageability (core developer)
- xs-cim/xen-cim, CIM plugin for managing XenServer (original author)
- libvirt-cim, CIM provider for libvirt virtualization management API (contributor)
I'm the author/co-author of a bunch of industry standards for virtualization management (the stuff behind-the-scenes that manages cloud computing).

And for those who enjoy reading cryptic, esoteric academic papers, here's my Ph.D. thesis:
