I'm Nathan Heafner, im 25 years of age currently Living in North Carolina, USA. I started using Linux in 2003 when my Windows computer crashed and I wanted to try Linux because it was "Free". I started using PClinux then Debian and puppy Linux for a while. The fact that linux was free gave me the confidence to give it a try. I had nothing else to lose. After around 6 months of using Linux I made the full switch in 2004. I'm dedicated to expanding the Linux user-base, assisting with testing, promoting ideas on brainstorm, and building Linux oriented skills that are relevant in the current workplace.
Usually you'll find me somewhere in these channels:
and I'm usually idling/parked in other random channels.
I have been spreading the word of Ubuntu to friends and family for the past two years and hope to expand on this. I have been a long time advocate and can account for many new users from my local community. I have been beta testing for the majority of this time for personal enrichment and with some benefits back to the community. I am heavily involved with Launchpad Answers and assisting with documentation improvements. I like to assist users on Launchpad and enjoy answering questions. My Karma is currently around 7k + and I am working towards my goal for 2012 of 14k.
