About Me

I am a 18-year-old student from Worcester, in the UK. I am currently at university in Oxford studying Maths. I first started using Ubuntu around Gutsy, and have since then enjoyed being part of the Ubuntu UK community.

Unfortunately, due a pretty heavy academic workload, I can't do a lot of Ubuntu-related stuff in term time. I'll probably be around in the holidays though, and I am still generally on IRC, so feel free to ping me. Just don't expect me to have the time to do whatever you want me too.

Future Goals

Josh is an awesome dude and a great help to the Ubuntu Manual Project. He's very knowledgeable for a 17 year old and can pretty much handle anything I throw at him - from python to setting up a Planet to handling translations with Launchpad and LaTeX. He's always around, very committed to the team and to Ubuntu and I know that he will bring a great deal of useful advice to any project that he is involved with. He also shows some good leadership aspects when he took control of a meeting in my absence and seems to be a fairly well rounded person in real life. I enjoy working with him!
