My Fedora Life

... began back in April of 2010. After distro/OS hoping for some time, and nearly settling on a BSD variant, I found the Fedora Infrastructure team. I read some of the SOPs on the wiki, joined a few IRC channels, and instantly knew that I wanted to be a part of the team. Almost a year later, I am now on the core sysadmin team for the project, and enjoy spending time fixing things and making the Infrastructure, and thus, the Project, be the best it can be. :) In mid 2011, I was the recipient of the Fedora Scholarship. I owe a huge Thank You to the Fedora Project and to all who make the scholarship possible.

My Other Life...or lack thereof

I attend college, at The University of Akron, where I am majoring in Computer Science. I am the Vice President of two fine clubs at the University: The student ACM chapter and the University of Akron Amateur Radio Club (W8UPD). I have big dreams for my future, and generally tend to carry a positive attitude about life and its horrors blessings.
