Welcome. My name is Leo Suarez and I’m an x86 server engineer living in Raleigh, North Carolina. If you haven’t met me before, let me start off by saying that I love Raleigh! On one hand, I lead a team that tests server management solutions for IBM. On the other, I’m a passionate citizen advocate for the downtown Raleigh area.
At IBM, I’ve been working on x86-based servers for over seven years. In my current position, I’ve been leading test and development teams for over four years to fulfill their mission of delivering quality, staying on schedule, and evolving with the changing technologies. Growing as an engineer, my specialties have become my company’s solutions with regards to System x server management, cloud, and large-scale data center configurations.
Around Raleigh, I’ve found my voice in telling the story of the downtown revitalization. Written and photographed by me for over seven years now, The Raleigh Connoisseur is a website that follows the city’s challenge of growth and how to embrace urbanity. A hobby and passion project, the site has become a distinct part of my identity.
