Bio: 

Former Blackhat turned Open-Source evangelist.

Mariano is a seasoned LAMP sysop/developer with over 16 years of web development experience across a large cross section of industries.

"After a long stint on the wrong site of the technical fence, I decided to focus my attention to systems that create change, not chaos. You do wild things in your 20s.... and im lucky im not dead or in prison. ;-)"

Specializing in Enterprise level Drupal integrations, Mariano has a knack for performance and security. Working for Acquia the past several years has exposed him to some of the more complex Drupal implementations known to date.

When he is not working with teams around the country to harness the power of Drupal and guiding people through the community, he is dreaming of surf and food in far off lands.
