Terry is the Director of DNS Engineering at ICANN, he is responsible for L-root (one of the 13 root servers) and manages the talented team that keeps it humming along with the infrastructure supporting the portfolio of ICANN organisational domains. Terry also serves on the board of AusNOG, the Australian Network Operators Group. For almost all of his career he has held operationally focused roles and, while Terry has a number academic parchments on the wall, he prefers to see tangible links between concepts and actual deployability. In the research realm Terry is most interested in advancements in Internet networking (home, enterprise, global) and the behaviours of large scale network services and topologies, and the impact they have on the end user. Terry lives in Brisbane, Australia, with his wife Lauren, two daughters Phoenix and Caitlyn, and their highly trained attack guinea pigs. He gets his kicks from an unhealthy fascination with motorcycles, especially Italian made sports bikes. Asking about what happened to the BMW motorcycles in Maastricht (IETF78) is unwise as the memory and pain is yet to fade.
