My name is Danny and I reside in the peaceful city of Newton, Massachusetts, USA. I am in my sophomore year at Newton North High School. I was born in 1991 and have lived in Newton since I was an infant (though not in the same house).

My Interest and Experience with Linux
I have always had a huge interest in digital rights and open source. I began using linux early this year with Ubuntu. I aim to get linux on a significant number of computers at my school and get the Massachusetts Loco Team approved. I also avocate Ubuntu locally (and yes, in the real world!).
My Involvement with Ubuntu
I am a member of the [:MassachusettsTeam:MassachusettsTeam Ubuntu LoCo Team] and I have dedicated much of my time to help the team by starting and taking on a couple [:MassachusettsTeam/Projects:projects], and organizing, expanding, and building the wiki pages for the team. I'm also often on the team's irc channel.
Outside the Team
I advocate Ubuntu at my school and would love to get my city library to switch too. I am working to get my school to try Ubuntu and have gotten the head of the Technology Department to give me a brand new school iMac (right out of the box) to install Ubuntu on and put it out for students to try and give feedback on. So far, so good!
I help friends and family switch too. Everybody loves it!
