James Brinkerhoff

Principal Systems Architect

James has worked in the internet/hosting service provider world for the last 20 years, starting when he was 15 years old at a small local ISP in Northern NJ.   An OG (Original Geek), James is excited by all manner of science and technology.

Prior to joining Packet, James spent 6 years managing the group responsible for virtual and bare metal automation at Voxel dot Net. He continued to update and maintain these systems through the acquisition of Voxel by Internap Network Services in March of 2012. Most recently he worked as part of the team developing a new platform based around OpenStack at Internap as a Platform Architect.

A die-hard NYC dweller, James has recently migrated his geekery to the snowy north (Western NY) to live with his amazing girlfriend, their cat Ringo and a beefy Ariens snow blower. While he misses the city, he now has more room to expand his collection of classic computers, 3D printers and RF gear.
