 my name is Mick and I'm notorious late and slow to everything ;)

My involvement with Zipkin started back in 2015 alongside Eirik Sletteberg at in Norway,
and have been following Adrian and his solid work from the first OpenZipkin workshop in Budapest
til the current day.

Since leaving Norway and in 2015 I've been a consultant at The Last Pickle where we
help clients with their Apache Cassandra platforms. That expertise on Cassandra helped design
the new Cassandra backend schema for Zipkin2. 

I given a number of presentations at different conferences on Zipkin, and it is definitely
one of my favourite technologies to talk about. If you have any questions about using the
Cassandra backend to Zipkin reach out!

I've been keen on open source for a while now, going back as far as being the community elected
Governance Board member for NetBeans shortly after it was open sourced in 2002 (how cool is
it that it too is now in the Incubator). Was involved in the Tigris open source community
with the Scarab issue tracker project, and more recently with Apache as a VP, PMC, Committer
and Member,  involved in Tiles, Cassandra, and the Incubator (SkyWalking and Zipkin) now.

I live in a little town called Sawtell on Australia's east coast and spend many of my non-working
hours in the ocean. Nature based activities is always a successful conversation starter with
me :-)
