About me

I've been using Ubuntu for some time now (not quite sure how long, I'd have to go digging for that information) and I've really come to love and enjoy using Linux on the desktop and server. Even though I considered myself a very tech-savvy person before joining the Linux community, I've found Ubuntu to be exceptionally easy to use and recommend it to all my friends and family.

I love Ubuntu so much that I've decided that I want to give back to the Ubuntu community! I'm a frequent idler of #xubuntu, #xubuntu-devel, #ubuntu-ca, #ubuntu-marketing, #launchpad, #xubuntu-offtopic, #ubuntu-marketing, #ubuntu-doc, #ubuntu-mobile, #ubuntu-testing, #ubuntu-desktop, #ubuntu-motu and a number of other channels regularly. I also hope to lend some of my programming skills to help improve the Xubuntu distribution and Ubuntu as a whole.

Early of August 2008, I was hired by Canonical as the OEM Services Custom Engineering Group's release engineer.

On October 13th, 2009, I became a Ubuntu core developer.

Skill Set

I can program in Java, Pike, Python, JavaScript (getting rusty), C/C++, PHP, Bash Script, Objective-C, and LPC comfortably and I'm always looking to learn more.

Love to ramble about CS/tech topics and don't mind lots of questions? Then I've got an ear to listen with. :]

I also consider myself to be proficient in written and spoken English but I can be a horrible speller at times.<g>

Other notable skills include leadership, organization, and the ability to quickly learn new topics.

Other distros that I have experience with include RedHat 9, Debian, DSL (my first linux distro), Slackware, Fedora Core, RHEL 3, and a few other small utility distros.
