I am a Senior Staff Solution Architect working on the VMware Cloud team within the Cloud Services Business Unit (CSBU) at VMware. I focus on Automation, Integration and Operation of our Software Defined Datacenter (SDDC). One of my primary responsibility is driving our Customer initiative and help provide early feedback on the usability, design and architecture of new VMware Cloud features and capabilities. I work closely with Engineering & Product Management on developing new ideas and integrations which extend into our on-premises customers. Lastly, through customer interactions I continue champion their challenges and needs to help further improve VMware’s products and services.
