About me


I am a results-driven technology executive with 24+ years of professional experience and a rich blend of strategic leadership, product development expertise, and deep-seated passion for open-source software. I am currently working as the Software Development Manager for the core engine team delivering the Amazon RDS for MySQL and MariaDB services. Before it I was the CEO of Seravo until 2021, and the CEO of MariaDB Foundation until 2018.

You can follow me on Twitter or connect on LinkedIn.

I have a strong bias for action, and a proven history of transforming and growing organizations by leveraging a unique blend of technological acumen and business strategy, which I hope to share in this blog. My goal is to help readers gain a deeper understanding regarding open source software, software engineering in general, management in technical fields, business improvement, life hacks and much more.
