Today marks the completion of a full year at Red Hat. It has been an incredible year! I find myself positively challenged daily, working with some of the smartest people I have ever met — both my colleagues within Red Hat, and the customers I get to work with. I get the privilege of being able to work with Open Source technologies, and bring them to a great variety of enterprises. And I have even found my niche within Red Hat’s Identity Management space (imagine that!).
I do miss my team and other friends at UConn. UConn gave me great opportunity, both to gain strong technical skills, and to experience leadership, both formally as management, and informally as a mentor and vocal innovator. I place great value in those first 13 years of my professional career, and I look forward to achieving similar gains in my next 13 years!
