My background is in Cisco VoIP engineering and support with a specialization in signaling protocols, Cisco IOS, and call routing traces. Iโ€™ve spent 15 years providing senior-level support as Technical Lead for a Managed Services team of 13 support staff and direct management over our senior engineers. I hold a CCIE certification in Unified Collaboration (#25689) and acted as point-of-contact for VIP customers including NYU Medical, Ernst & Young, Bloomberg LP, Skadden Arps, and Mt. Sinai Medical. During my 15 years I closed over 6,000 incidents for 30+ clients, and wrote and held technical training classes on SIP, MGCP, intra-cluster signaling, UC security, and advanced call routing solutions.

I began working to promote Harmony across Reddit and Twitter, took on a number of initiatives, and worked during my free time to assist various members of the team. As a core member, my focus is now on in-person and online communities with a goal of establishing recurring meet-ups around the world, act as team lead and liaison for the Ambassador DAO, assisting the grant review team with reviews and approvals, and to continue interacting with the online communities as a liaison to core team colleagues.

Peter: Daniel did excellent work in January, leading the ambassador dao and encouraging them to self-organize and deliver. I appreciate Danielโ€™s diligence in helping with our external communication and triage regarding our network challenges. He has a very keen ability to communicate clearly and to diffuse high-stress situations.
