-      Talk about Wes here.
+      Wes is one of the newest members of the LDAPd group, and a founding
+      member of the Apache Directory Project, having joined the Apache Software
+      Foundation when LDAPd was absorbed into the Apache incubator.
+    <section name="Background">
+      <p>
+	      As an IT profressional, entrepreneur, and father, Wes has worked in the Atlanta
+	      metro area for over 14 years.  Wes has always had a special love for Open Source
+	      initiatives and their authors, having used open source applications with many of
+	      the companies for which he has worked.  Wes discovered LDAPd and Alex Karasulu
+	      while searching for an open source project to integrate into his current employer's
+	      commercial offerings.  Having found LDAPd on SourceForge, he immediately got
+	      excited about the synergies between the two products, and realized that Wes and
+	      LDAPd had a lot to offer each other.
+      </p>
+      <p>  
+          Wes is current involved with the Snickers subproject.  Snickers is a drop in
+          replacement for the ASN.1 codec used by Eve.  ASN.1 is the base protocol used by
+          all X.500 compliant LDAP servers.  The Snickers subproject itself is broken up
+          into compiler and coder/decoder subprojects.  Snickers will be a <b>non-blocking,
+          event driven</b> parser, setting itself apart from currently available open
+          source and commercial offerings.
+      </p>
+      <p> 
+          Wes has taken a great interest in the database sub-system used by Eve and the orignal
+          LDAPd server.  He has written several new backends, and also a entirely new indexing
+          scheme to handle the various technical challenges of the LDAP persistent storage.
