''Tell us a bit about yourself.'' I started with UNIX is 1993, using Solaris, and then moved to Linux in 1997 using Slackware, Red Hat, and now Ubuntu. I began Linux kernel development in 2001, in the USB subsystem, and have contributed since then in various kernel subsystems including memory management, networking, and crypto.

''Tell us how you got involved, what you liked working on and what you could probably do better.'' I joined Canonical in 2015 as part of the Support and Technical Services Engineering team, and have been working on problems that reach into many different parts of Ubuntu; the kernel, networking, multipath, udev, and more. I enjoy digging deep into technical details and solving problems.

=== General feedback ===

I have sponsored a few packages from Dan over the year and the ones I have seen were high quality.
Dan has the desire to do things right and he always accept constructive comments/feedbacks with a positive attitude.

He understands the principles of debian packaging and the SRU process and he is not afraid to ask questions when needed.
As a SRU uploader, it is always a pleasure to sponsor a patch from Dan, and I think he would be a great addition to the SRU uploader launchpad team.

=== Specific Experiences of working together ===

Dan is a colleague and I work with him for the past 2 years now. Dan's role is to drive bugs into resolution by troubleshooting, fixing bugs, providing guidance & workarounds, for different areas of expertise which may cover areas such as: kernel, drivers, virtualization, network, cloud, storage setups, ... and physical/virtual environment orchestration.

=== Areas of Improvement ===

Nothing I can think of...
