George Reese began his career serving in a variety of Hollywood production roles from PA to camera operator to editor on shows like The People’s Court, ESPN Up Close, and the USA Network’s Up All Night.
After the LA Riots, however, Mr. Reese left Hollywood and went to work in technology. He ultimately wrote a number of technology books, got an MBA, and became an entrepreneur. Among the companies he has started are Valtira and enStratus (also known as Enstratius). In May of 2013, Enstratius saw a successful exit to Dell and Mr. Reese joined Dell as an Executive Director in cloud computing.
Although he has been very successful in technology, his passion for television and film never faded. In 2015, he began work on several screenplays and production of the short film Reconquista. He has served in various roles on various other short films and is currently engaged in the entertainment start-up SparqTV. He serves as the head of the content production division SparqTV Productions where he produces television content for delivery on SparqTV.
Mr. Reese is the author of several books on cloud computing and enterprise technologies. His most recent books are The REST API Design Handbook and O’Reilly’s Cloud Application Architectures. Mr. Reese holds a BA from Bates College in Maine and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
