I started my technology career as a consultant, focused on managing and deploying wintel server and VMware systems. I was fortunate to be in the early days of VMware-based virtualization because centralized storage was a key component. I learned many things back then and continue to learn even more in today's world. After managing and deploying systems, I spent time at EMC, HPE and Value-Added-Resellers educating and helping clients transform their business with technology . It's an exciting time to be a part of Pure Storage.
