I've been privileged to get to work on a number of cool projects over the years:
Toss in a list of assorted Apache modules, perl modules, TCP/IP stacks, fulltext engines, in-memory engines, distributed repositories, data warehouses, and replications schemes for medical libraries.
Today I am an HP Fellow. In the past I have worked as the CTO for Data Differential, as a Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems, and as Director of Architecture at MySQL AB. Other employers include VA Linux, Andover.net, the Cobalt Group, and a few others places.
I also spend some of my time promoting Open Source Software. I regularly speak at six or so conferences a year.
I have many, many, projects that I work on. When someone asks me what I am currently working on in Open Source, I say Drizzle, Memcached, and Gearman.
Check Linked-in if you want additional information. Yes, I will do advisory work for companies, but I am very picky.
Travel? Good luck figuring out where I am at most of the time. I have a taste for adventure and indulge it regularly. If you look through my photos you will discover that my favorite "sport" is rock climbing. I actively train, which means you can find me in a gym three or more times a week.
