Monty is a long time Free Software Hacker and a Distinguished Technologist at HP. He is founder and currently a core team member of the OpenStack Infrastructure program which runs OpenStack's massively scalable dev/test and CI system. You should never let him name projects, because if you do, you'll end up with something like "jeepyb" or "TripleO". Before OpenStack he was a MySQL consultant and a core dev on the Drizzle fork of MySQL. Outside of technology, Monty has a degree in Theatre, lives in Brooklyn, and is an Associate Artist with Seattle's Satori Group.
