== About Me ==

I'm a 31 year old father of three living in the United States, in the Bluegrass State of Kentucky. By day I am a Network Administrator supporting mostly Windows machines. I have been using Linux (Ubuntu, Gentoo, Red Hat, Suse, Slackware) for about 4 years now. It all started for me when I started learning Perl. I was writing my code on a Red Hat 8 machine and a friend of mine challenged me to do something that wasn't so easy. He said that I should try to run Slackware. So I did. He then kept giving me more and more challenges and in the process I was getting deeper and deeper into Linux.

Then comes Ubuntu. In late 2005 a friend introduced me to Ubuntu, then version 5.10. At the time I was using Gentoo and Suse and really wasn't impressed with it. In November of that year I changed jobs. Within the first few weeks I had a Suse box up and running on the new companies network monitoring the servers. One of the other members of the IT staff saw that I was running Linux and wanted to know more about it. I happened to have some Ubuntu CDs with me and gave him one to try out. Since he was brand new to Linux I thought that it would be a good idea for me to set up a machine for myself to run Ubuntu. That I could see what he was seeing when questions came up. At that point I was hooked. I have been using Ubuntu since that point and have never looked back.

In Janurary 2007, I founded the [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KentuckyTeam KentuckyTeam] LoCo team. The team started with a small group of three and in the first month grew to 15. We have some big plans for this year. The biggest of which is to start a [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KentuckyTeam/CharityProject Charity] project that will focus on providing PCs to people that can not afford to purchase on. Of course pre-loaded with Ubuntu.
