I NEED YOUR HELP – VMworld & GoFundMe Edition!


Last year was my first time attending VMworld.  As someone who’s whole career is currently centered around VMware products, this conference is THE conference to attend.  I received a free conference pass to VMworld in Las Vegas this year, however I am looking for assistance covering the Travel Expenses (Airfare, Hotel, Transportation).  I’ll cover meal costs myself.

I am a Systems Engineer for a global news organization.  I’ve had my VCP since 2011 and was elected vExpert by VMware in 2015 and again in 2016.  I was also elected PernixPro.  I’m also a leader of the VMware User Group for New Jersey.  I’ve spent a lot of my time giving back to the VMware community and now I need your help!

As this is too much to lay out on my own, I’m looking for help funding my trip!  I started a GoFundMe page and my goal is $1000 to cover Hotel, Airfare, and other expenses.  I’m also offering if I receive a donate of $200 or more, I will put your company’s logo on a shirt/backpack/messenger bag that I will wear/carry throughout the event!  Below is an example of what I envision the them to look like… 🙂

Thank you for your time and I hope to see you at VMworld in August!
