About me

I'm an Ubuntu Core Developer since 2009, member of the Ubuntu Developer Membership board, and former project leader for the Xubuntu flavour of Ubuntu.

Previously an employee of Canonical, I designed and implemented the image building, software package repository management, and release infrastructure used by the Professional Engineering and Services group to deliver Ubuntu pre-installed on eight-to-ten million devices in 2011.

I'm now an engineer in Hewlett-Packard's Office of Corporate Strategy and Technology doing fun cloud R&D stuff Smile :)

I'm always happy to lend a hand or help anyway I can. If you're interested in any of the projects I'm involved in or think I'd be interested in one of yours, please feel free to contact me.
