Jay Gerland

Award Winning Director of Engineering at

I have been working with the Internet since 1996. Currently directing a large team of high-performing wizards at where we serve up sites for some of the largest Telcos and Cable companies in the U.S. for millions of users every day.

I also listen to a lot of music while I form many half-baked ideas about bands and albums. See what I'm currently listening to at
