About me

I am currently a Uni student undertaking a Bachelor of Engineering (Software Systems and Aerospace) at the University of Queensland. I have a strong interest in computers, especially software and web programming.

I have played around with Linux since 2006, with Ubuntu being my main choice. I initially tried Knoppix and Fedora, but after trying Ubuntu 5.10 and later Ubuntu 6.06, I settled on Ubuntu as my favourite Linux distro. Currently I have Ubuntu 11.10 installed on both of my computers, as well as a couple of virtual computers that are mainly used for web programming.

I taught myself HTML/CSS in 2003, and moved on to PHP a couple of years later. I created my own basic CMS in 2008, as a way to learn more in-depth PHP and MySQL. However, I have now decided to use Drupal for all my websites, as it is a lot easier and much more powerful.

I am a member of Ubuntu Australia Team, mainly helping out with the IRC channels and translations.


  • Ubuntu Australian LoCo Team Member

    • I have chaired the monthly Ubuntu-AU IRC team meetings, in tandem with JoelPickett since June 2011

    • I have fixed up wiki pages to have a consistent look and feel
    • I help to answer questions on the #ubuntu-au IRC channels
  • Translation of Ubuntu to English (Australia)
    • I have contributed/reviewed approximately 45,000 string translations
  • Ubuntu Global Jams
    • I ran two Jams for the Precise cycle - a Localisation jam and a Wiki jam

Future Goals

  • I hope to keep the English (Australia) locale translations at 100% translated
  • I would like to see a localised iso for Australia, so will assist as much as I can to get this done
  • I would like to assist with fixing bugs in Ubuntu packages


If you know me and have something nice to say, please leave a comment here.
