"I started working directly for Novell on September 26 of 1997.
Prior to working for Novell, I was a Certified Novell Instructor,
teaching all angles of NetWare, as well as other advanced network
administration classes. I was recruited into Novell to do technical
field sales. After two years, I took on a role as product
evangelist for the new ZENworks product line, then briefly served
as product manager for the management console iManager before
becoming director of product management for the eDirectory product
line. After that, I moved into marketing and served as director of
marketing for GroupWise and Novell Linux Desktop, and finally
shifted into my current role as user community
guy/podcaster/blogger. In my current role I got to work with the
members of Novell Users International, the open source community,
and the brilliant engineers of SUSE and Ximian, as well as those of
traditional Novell backgrounds. It has been a fantastic run.
"March 24th, 2007 was my final day working at Novell. Leaving
will be anything but easy. The people who make up Novell's
technical community, both outside and inside of the company, have
been wonderful to me. Still, I want to try something new. Spending
almost a decade at a single company is a long time..."
