Krain Arnold

An established IT professional with both civilian and military experience. I have a strong passion for open source technologies and love working at Red Hat. I am originally from the DC area but currently reside in southern Sweden where I enjoy kräfta and vildsvin with my lovely wife, six year old daughter, three year old son, and zero year old newb. I spend most of my days in ketosis.

I'm a member of a small but talented team of architects who focus on enabling adoption of Red Hat's emerging technology stack. Currently, I'm primarily working with ManageIQ, CloudForms, and Ansible.

Above all I like to build things that solve problems.
