About Me

My name is Jimmy Sjölund but I usually go by 'cub' online since, well forever. I started out as a sound technician, amateur musician, computer geek who ended up in the IT world. I have always fiddled with computers since my first Texas Instruments TI-99/4A. I explored different distributions until I landed with Ubuntu in 2004. I switched to Ubuntu Studio in 2007, but being an analog studio technician/musician I didn't start using Ubuntu Studio for audio recordings until 2010. I have been an active member of the Ubuntu Forums since 2006 and recently felt confident I could do more for the community and contacted the Ubuntu Studio team. I like to try out new things but when it comes to day-to-day work I want my environment to be stable, low on resources, and if possible somewhat shiny.

Contact Information


So far my contributions have been to help out in the Ubuntu Forums as much as possible, mostly in the Ubuntu Studio and Absolute Beginner Section. Lately I have been helping out with support in the #ubuntustudio channel as well as on AskUbuntu. I have also engaged in discussions on the Ubuntu Studio mailing lists as well as the #ubuntustudio-devel channel where I can and have any expertise or ideas to share.

Future Goals

My goals are to become more active in the development of Ubuntu Studio, broaden the areas where I can provide support, learn about packaging and participate in testing of the new releases.
