=== Introduction ===
 
 
* '''Mission Statement:'''
 
** I'll continue to work to maintain a high level of technical feasibility and avoid micromanagement in decisions made by FESCo. I'll try to ensure that our processes for developers are as simple as possible, and to avoid processes that result in unnecessary work, or in duplication of effort, as we form new rules for change management in Fedora.  As I've shown in the past, I'll continue to try to guide our policy decisions to put the power and responsibility in developers hands rather than requiring FESCo's or other committee's intervention and participation at every level.
 
 
* '''Past Work Summary:'''
 
** I've worked on Linux for Red Hat since 1998 in various roles including technical support and engineering. I'm one of the anaconda maintainers as well as the maintainer of (thankfully now deprecated) mkinitrd, and am or have been maintainer of Fedora's packages for booty, cdparanoia, dumpet, gnu-efi, grub, grub2, grubby, python-pyblock, syslinux, and others.  I've worked on many levels of our software stack, including implementing installation and boot support for iSCSI, UEFI, dmraid, from the kernel all the way up through userspace. I also represent Red Hat and Fedora on the UEFI Specification Working Group. I'm currently a member of FESCo seeking re-election, and have been serving in this capacity since the winter election of 2009.
 
 
* '''Future Plans:'''
 
** I'm currently focused on implementing and impoving UEFI support throughout Fedora.  As a FESCo member I'll continue to help ensure that developers have what they need to implement their features and bug fixes with as little hindrance as possible, and at the same time avoid unnecessary and wasted effort, especially as we revamp the Feature process.

* '''Past work summary:'''
 
* '''Past work summary:'''
** I've worked with Fedora since the beginning, as a community member and in my various roles as sysadmin and systems architect at Boston University and Harvard. (At BU, I helped host the very first FUDCons.) I've maintained a number of small packages for a long time. I was hired by Red Hat last year to work on Fedora Cloud, and have been working with others in the Cloud SIG to add polish to our Cloud images. I'm also on the Minimal Core SIG, which I care about both for the cloud images and because changes there ripple out and affect everyone. I'm often active on the mailing lists, and while I sometimes have strong opinions, I know I'm not always right and therefore try very hard to listen to all the different viewpoints.

 +
** Red Hat employee for just over a year, working on Fedora Workstation

** I maintain some GNOME and MinGW packages in Fedora
  
 
* '''Future plans:'''
 
* '''Future plans:'''
** I have a somewhat active vision for a Fedora project, centered around a base platform and with greater latitude for SIGs to solve problems within their areas. I'd like to see a more carefully managed (but not stagnant!) core OS, while allowing other layers to be less perfect when perfection is getting in their way — yet still hold those layers to standards agreed on by the Fedora community. Without both of these things, we risk becoming irrelevant: either beautiful but rarely used, or completely marginalized as we're passed by. Fedora is the best enthusiast distribution, and it can ''also'' be the best platform for development, the best cloud environment, and the base for a polished end-user experience.
+
** Support the activities of Working Groups, especially Workstation
 +
** Clear out old FESCo tickets so that it is easier to focus on new ones
 +
** Outside of FESCo, I am interested in application sandboxing, as well as MinGW packaging and EasyTAG
