He was the community and release manager for the OpenSDS project, a program director for the OpenLab cross-community testing lab, and has contributed to several projects in various areas. Most of his experience has been within the OpenStack community, where he was the Project Team Lead of the Cinder block storage project for four releases, a member of the Technical Committee for two years, served as a community representative on the OpenStack Foundation Board of Directors, and has been the release management lead for the last several years.

Sean is excited to be part of the EdgeX Foundry project, where he hopes to continue Dell’s involvement and help continue to foster a thriving and diverse community of participants. He is a strong believer in open and transparent project leadership, and hopes to take his experiences from other communities to help EdgeX continue to grow and evolve.
