I've been a VCL user for a few years now, but I am a new-comer to the development side of things. I'll be looking to contribute to VCL through the Centennial Networking Lab at NCSU. I've worked at NCSU since my graduation in 2006 with a Masters in Networking. Primarily, my knowledge and interest is in virtualization and storage systems. I also am an intern at IBM in the WebSphere Group.

I look forward to working with the Apache community as VCL matures.

All of the discussion in the "Re: svn commit:
r730210 - /incubator/vcl/branches/before-modularized-os/" thread about
creating community made me realize one way to start building community is to
have a round of introductions on the list.

I've been one of the primary developers (along with Aaron Peeler) of VCL since its creation in 2004. I've always been focused on the php web frontend with small amounts of dabbling in the backend code. We both worked as sysadmins for the IT group in NCSU's College of Engineering doing lots of different tasks when VCL started and eventually ended up moving to new positions to
work strictly on VCL.

I've worked at NCSU since I graduated from here in 2001. All of my web development has been in php. I'm not much of a graphics designer, but enjoy focusing on how the internals work. I've been in the open source world for many years, but haven't contributed much code to any projects before now. I'm excited about the move to ASF, but am a little overwhelmed by all there
is to learn about the "ASF way".

On a personal note, I'm married with one kid and another on the way. I'm very involved at my church (mainly on the tech team). I also love wakeboarding.
