Subject Re: [ANNOUNCE] Welcome Ricky Nguyen to the Apache OODT PMC and as a committer

Hi all!

Thanks for welcoming me into the OODT community so warmly and so quickly. It's been great
working with Chris, Andrew, Cameron and Dan these past few months as they've helped me with
the CHLA VPICU project (@vpicu) (along with Sheryl, Paul Vee, and Dave). I also met Paul Ramirez
at ApacheCon in Vancouver, where my eyes were opened to the amazing Apache community. Yesterday
I just met Steve Hughes who offered great insight into ontologies. Brian, Sean, Rishi, and
Thomas,  I've seen your great work, on the mailing lists, in the code, and on the wikis. I
look forward to working with you all and the others on this list.

A bit about myself… I left the beaches of Hawaii for the snow of Boston to get my degree
from MIT. Without professional sports in Hawaii, I became an adopted Red Sox fan and fond
of all things Boston. My sister and parents moved to the Bay Area, so I joined them and worked
for Oracle for 4 years. My girlfriend earned a pediatric residency at CHLA this fall, so I
moved down and coincidentally the VPICU at CHLA had an amazing position open for me! I've
been working with OODT ever since. I am sad that Bay Area football decided to suddenly become
awesome as soon as I left, happy that the NBA lockout is over and CP3+Griffin=WIN, and excited
to contribute to and learn from the OODT community! :D
