Me in Brief
I'm a web designer, graphic designer and eMarketing professional in Greenville, South Carolina and/or Boston, Massachusetts. I've been using *nix for about eight or nine years now. I started off Slackware after being compelled by friends on DarkFire IRC. This lasted quite a while until I switched to Debian and FreeBSD. I still have ongoing, loving relationship with Debian and FreeBSD. I have a few dedicated servers running CentOS 5.0. I guess I'm just a flexible guy.
I found Ubuntu about 2 years ago and also have a loving relationship with Ubuntu Linux. I use both Debian and Ubuntu for personal use (for different things, mainly Debian on my production server machine(s) at home). In the past year or so, I've been using Ubuntu mostly all of the time on my workstations (laptops and P.C.) in stable current release and development branch release full-time.
I began my activity with the Ubuntu Community in early 2007. I officially started the [:SouthCarolinaTeam:South Carolina US Team] after much thought and talk with Eric Lank (etank, FreeNode IRC) and believe I am assisting it grow and hope to eventually get it approved into an official LoCo in May, 2008. Go Team South Carolina!
