Member of the Spring Data team and project lead for Spring Data GemFire, Spring Data for Apache Geode and Spring Data for Apache Cassandra. Committer on Apache Geode and Spring Session. I joined VMware in 2011 working on Distributed Systems, In-Memory Data Grid (IMDG) technology that is now Pivotal GemFire, and officially joined the Spring team in August of 2015 working across the Spring Data portfolio.
I have been designing and engineering enterprise applications in Java since 1998 and using Spring technologies since 2004. Since programming on a Commodore 64 way back in 1983, I have been very passionate and excited about what technology can do to help humanity and our planet move through the 21st century and beyond.
