About Me

I discovered Ubuntu after fighting off a multitude of virus infections, which ended up in tonnes of lost data. Unable to find the original key for Windows, and finding my recovery partition infected as well, I decided to look for an alternative to Windows.

I found Ubuntu first, at version 6.04. Back then, I had one of those highly-unsupported and garbage sis video cards. As a result, Xorg and I fought a lot. Eventually, I went back to Windows. I came back at version 8.04 with a new laptop, curious about how Ubuntu has progressed, and eager to give it a second try. Since then, I've been on the forums.

I also run Ubuntu on my computers at home (dual boot), and on all my servers with Ubuntu Cloud, other than the FreeBSD Gateway.

Professional Work

I work as a Audio/Video production specialist at an undisclosed company due to work contracts.

Formerly worked for a datacenter, but was highly unsatisfied with the work times, and left after moving to Los Angeles.


  • Ubuntu Bug Reporting

    Ubuntu Providing Assistance on IRC Chatrooms

    Ubuntu Proposing Ideas at Ubuntu Brainstorm

My main contributions have been in the Ubuntu Forums, where I offer friendly advice, mainly to newbies. I also formerly developed the now-defunct Adobe Flash Tools in the forums.

Occasionally, when I do get ideas, I propose them into Ubuntu Brainstorm.

I also eat tonnes of spam posts, and report posts to be moved.

Future Goals
