I am currently acting as a Chief Architect in AOL's Online Media group. I came to AOL by way of the online storage dot.com, Xdrive, where I was one of the founders. Right now my work at AOL expands upon my previous experience at Xdrive in developing large scale solutions for managing digital assets for users. I have had wide experiences with Internet based open distributed computing systems. I am a long time advocate of the Java platform and open source solutions. At AOL, our group is one of the largest installations of JBoss. I personally have two open source projects, JMX4ODP (jmx4odp.sourceforge.net) and JPAW (jpaw.sourceforge.net). Additionally, I have been lucky enough to have some of my code incorporated into other open source projects from Apache, JBoss, and ObjectWeb.
