Wade M Price

Senior Solutions Architect

"I love building things in the cloud or at home!"

I am a Solutions Architect and enjoy hiking with my family, playing golf, and learning new technologies. Prior to AWS, I worked at Palo Alto Networks as a Cloud Security Engineer supporting their largest customers: PWC, AON, and eBay onboarding and scaling their Cloud Security SASE (Secure Access Secure Edge) solution. Prior to that I worked at three startups back to back (Cloudgenix - a SD-WAN company, Webscale Networks - a cloud based Application Delivery Controller for e-commerce companies; and MapR Technologies (now HPE) a Big Data and Analytics data platform). I’ve worked in both pre and post sales roles that included both individual contributor and management positions. I have built Technical Support Organizations, but I enjoy mostly in rolling up my sleeves and getting in the trenches with customers and finding thems solutions to achieve their business outcomes.
