Larry is a passionate and eccentric technologist. He has spent 20+ years in enterprise infrastructure spanning across networking, compute, storage, and virtualization. Larry has also spent the last 7+ years in many DevOps/SRE roles navigating cloud-native architectures and distributed systems.

With all the various roles that Larry has held, he has in one way or another managed to navigate around technologies such as AWS, Azure, VMware, Ansible, HashiCorp, Kubernetes, Python, security, and observability. However, Larry finds himself discussing automation at scale and extreme abstractions on most occasions.

Larry is also an active community leader and open-source contributor. He also has a strong passion for mentoring and leading great humans, while also remaining humble and coachable himself.
