About

barry.jpg

I am currently the Chief Systems Wrangler at Automattic, where I am responsible for running the globally distributed infrastructure that powers WordPress.com, Akismet, VaultPress, IntenseDebate, and others.  Previously, I have worked for companies such as Laughing Squid, GigaOm, Electronic Arts, and Rackspace.  After living on both coasts, I have returned to Texas, where I was born and raised.  During the day, I do my best not to get too much BBQ sause on my keyboard; and at night….ok, well, it’s more of the same. When I’m not chatting on AIM, ICQ, Jabber, IRC, or reading about the latest and greatest in MySQL optimization, I enjoy traveling, attending and speaking at conferences, and playing a little lacrosse when I have time.
