Friends and colleagues,

It is with a heavy heart that I write to say my adventure in the OpenStack
community is coming to an end. It began in 2012 with my first job as an
intern at Cisco, and ends here as the Technical Lead for Neutron in the
OpenStack Innovation Center at Rackspace.

In that time I’ve worked with a great many wonderful people from all
corners of this community, on a variety of projects that I’m proud to
include my name in the commit logs. Thank you all for creating an exciting
place to work, to debate, and occasionally to argue about the incredible
democratizing power that is OpenStack. Your passion and expertise are an
inspiration to the world.

Regretfully, I’m leaving a void in both the Neutron team and the OpenStack
Manuals team. Neutron will need a new Docs liaison, and OpenStack Manuals
will need a new lead for the Networking Guide. The cross-project work
we’ve done together over the last couple of cycles has been engaging and
fulfilling, and I encourage anyone interested in either or both roles to
get in touch with Kevin Benton and Alexandra Settle.

Good luck and best wishes to all of you in the future.

Until we meet again,
