Ed first became involved with FreeBSD while working on the operating system team at Sandvine, Inc. in 2003. In 2005 he started working with Robert Watson to solve issues in the FreeBSD network stack and received a commit bit later that year.

Since then, he moved on to lead the operating system team, and led a number of developers working to bring enhancements from FreeBSD into Sandvine’s operating system by contributing back changes that they have made, and supporting work that they find valuable by contracting FreeBSD committers.

In 2013, Ed took on the role of Director of Project Development for the FreeBSD Foundation, managing the project grant process and full-time FreeBSD Foundation Development staff.
