== About Me ==

I'm a forty something information technology professional and Linux enthusiast. I live in Hampshire, England, with my wife and daughter.
I have been using Linux since 1995 and my first experience with Ubuntu was 4.10 (Warty Warthog). Prior to Ubuntu I used Yggdrasil, Slackware, Redhat, CRUX and Fedora and I switched to Arch Linux for my workstations in early 2012.

== Things I do for Ubuntu ==

I have recently co-founded [[https://ubuntu-mate.org||Ubuntu MATE]] and am currently the project lead. I am keen that Ubuntu MATE get recognised as an official Ubuntu flavor. Since starting work on Ubuntu MATE I have contributed several merge propsals to Ubuntu.

== External Stuff ==

 * [[https://www.archlinux.org/trustedusers/||Arch Linux Trusted User]] currently maintaining ~200 packages.
 * [[http://mate-desktop.org||MATE Desktop developer and webmaster]]
 * Maintainer of the [[http://mate-desktop.org/blog/2014-01-30-mate-desktop-live-cd||MATE Live CD]] (based on Arch Linux)
 * Debian contributor for the MATE packinging team.
 * MATE desktop and Arch Linux liason for [[http://sonargnulinux.com/||Sonar GNU/Linux]].
 * Regular contributor to [[http://www.jupiterbroadcasting.com/show/linuxun/||Linux Unplugged]].
 * Interviewed for several Linux related podcasts.
 * Member of 2 local LUGs.

== Future Work ==

 * Establish a larger team of regular contributors for Ubuntu MATE.

== Room for Improvement ==

There are areas where I'd like to improve myself and my own knowledge:

 * Development using Gobject Introspection.
