Helping you find the inspiration to do what you want to do, wherever you are, is a key element of Red Hat Summit. To that end, musical guest Ben Folds and guest speakers Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Mick Ebeling will lend their voices to the virtual experience, with conversations and Q&A guided by our emcee, Red Hat solutions architect Angela Andrews.
An award-winning actor, director, and screenwriter, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s career in film spans three decades, with standout performances in television (“3rd Rock from the Sun”), arthouse (“Mysterious Skin,” “Brick”), and multiplex (“Inception,” “500 Days of Summer,” “Snowden”) releases. He is also the founder and acting CEO of the online creative platform, HITRECORD.
Widely regarded as a major music influencer, Ben Folds has created pop albums with Ben Folds Five, multiple solo releases, and a number of collaborative records. He uses his passion for curiosity, storytelling, and creativity as an actor, photographer, and author, releasing a New York Times best-selling book in 2019 titled “A Dream About Lightning Bugs.”
A recipient of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian of the Year Award, Mick Ebeling has been named one of the world’s 50 greatest leaders by Fortune magazine and one of the world’s most influential creative people as part of AdAge’s Creativity 50. He is currently using his experience and background as a producer and filmmaker in his role as founder and CEO of Not Impossible, a social innovation lab and production company.
An Oscar-nominated writer and critically acclaimed actor and comedian, Kumail Nanjiani has starred in movies (“The Lovebirds” and “The Big Sick”) and television (the Emmy Award-winning “Silicon Valley” and “Little America”). He and his wife, Emily V. Gordon, have also created the podcast “Staying in with Emily and Kumail,” with all proceeds donated to charities that help those affected by COVID-19.

To help our speakers open their perspectives, our emcees will facilitate conversations, moderate Q&A opportunities, and guide sessions and activities at this year’s Red Hat Summit.
As emcee, Angela Andrews will introduce and help conduct interactions with this year’s special guests. Currently a solution architect at Red Hat, she has also used her passion for teaching as a systems administrator in higher education, as the host of an online meetup teaching Python, and as a part-time teaching assistant for a cybersecurity bootcamp.
By introducing presentations and leading Q&A segments, Emily Brand will serve as our emcee for keynote sessions. As Chief Architect of Transformation and Adoption at Red Hat, she relies on extensive experience in automation, containers, and application services to help clients in a number of industries modernize culture and improve business processes.
