The adventures of 2013

I had a great year in 2012, but 2013 was really exceptional.

Biggest news, on Sunday April 28th MJ and I were married in a ceremony just outside of Philadelphia!

We also hosted a California reception in August.

Second biggest news, in January I started my job with HP where I now get to work on the OpenStack Infrastructure with a team of amazing colleagues.

I also managed to log about 65k miles in flights this year, getting on a plane at least once a month for every month except for March, the rundown:

MJ and me at Ek Balam Mayan Ruins, Mexico

Khai, Clark and me at Ice House Street, Hong Kong

I also bumped the number of speaking engagements from 7 in 2012 to 10 in 2013, in spite of taking a few months off for wedding prep.

Presenting at Reflections | Projections conference

It was also a good year for interviews and publications:

  • Wrapping up the year in southern Florida with family

    While 2014 won’t feature a wedding (of my own!) and a job change seems unlikely, it’s already shaping up to be a great year. It’ll kick off with a trip to Australia for my first linux.conf.au (plus my first time in Australia!) and I learned this morning that I’ll be speaking at SCaLE12x Los Angeles in February. I’ve submitted talks for and been invited to a few other conferences and I’m also scheming to go on a trip somewhere interesting with MJ this year, we shall see!
