Shane has been involved at the Apache Software Foundation since 1999, and serves as Director and VP of Brand Management, setting policy for trademarks and branding and working with all 200+ Apache projects on community management, trademarks, and branding issues.

Otherwise, Shane is: a father and husband, a friend, a geek, a Member of the ASF, a baker, a BMW driver, a punny guy, and lifelong resident within the 495 belt. Oh, and we have cats. Shane regularly blogs and speaks on open source community, governance, and branding topics, and runs the Punderthings consultancy.

This website showcases some of the open source presentations I’ve made at major conferences, including ApacheCon, OSCON, All Things Open, Community Leadership Summit, and Ignite.
