At Rogue Wave Software we talk a lot about the benefits of OpenLogic Support and the fact that it provides you with around-the-clock access to Tier 3/4 open source architects – with no escalation path! Our open source architects become an extension of your team – ready to support, consult, and educate your team to solve issues across your entire software stack and development lifecycle. Because of that we wanted you to meet them, understand their expertise, their passion for open source, and how they can help you.

Where do you go to stay informed about open source?
Tell us your best “ah-ha” moment or customer experience.
A well-known educational institution lost its encrypted data store. I got on the server and looked around for about 10 minutes. Turns out, they mounted a filesystem on top of the original data that they thought they had lost. They had been looking for this data for about a week. It was such an “ah-ha” moment for both me and the customer.
Why do you love your job?
I love my job because I enjoy technical problems. And in my job the problems are never the same and are always challenging. My favorite part is helping customers resolve their issues.
Tell us something interesting about you.
I like to fly model aircraft in my free time.
