Like SolarWinds, I have roots in Oklahoma and have been fond
of land grant schools as I went from Oklahoma State University, moving South to
Texas A&M University. Like my college career (accounting, political
science, Russian language and then MBA), I have suffered ADD in my professional career
moving from finance to strategy to product management and marketing. I
have, however, settled on the broad niche of systems management and have
acquired knowledge in this space over the last 11 years.
I was very happy to join the SolarWinds team in January 2012
and have been very impressed with the technology. I look forward to
engaging with this community.
