Time For A Change: Career Edition

It is with mixed emotions that I am writing this today. I will be leaving my current role as Sr. Virtualization Engineer for Dell Services. Over the past 3 years, I have had the privilege of working for one of the largest accounts for Dell Services. I was hired on as a Wintel engineer with a strong knowledge of VMware. From there, I quickly became the Principal Architect and SME for the VDI solution. I have also become the Infrastructure Lead. I owe a huge debt to my original hiring manager, as well as the Cloud Services manager that helped build me up to where I am today. I will be leaving one of the greatest team of people I have had the opportunity to work with.

As of April 18th, 2016, I will shift directions slightly. I will be joining the VMware NSBU as Senior Systems Engineer, NSX Enterprise. While a lot of the existing NSBU folks have a heavy background in networking, I will be bringing my heavy virtualization background to the table. I am greatly looking forward to the opportunity to dive head first into one of the coolest pieces of technology to hit the streets. I will be working alongside and under some of the most gifted minds in the industry. This is extremely exciting for me, and I cannot wait to start.

One of the biggest goals I have for my life and career is to learn all I possibly can. While I have a grasp of basic networking, this job will give me the opportunity to jump out of my comfort zone and on to the bleeding edge of a rapidly growing technology. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for NSX, and I’ll be sure to share it with all of you. Stay tuned!
