Background

I began contributing to the Fedora Project as a packager in late 2007 (I was sponsored in early 2008). I soon stopped being able to find packages that I knew how to work with and started diving into other parts of Fedora, notably the Art Team (now the Design Team). From there I became more and more involved and, as they say, the rest is history.

I'm currently a sophomore at the University of Kansas, majoring in computer science. I was the 2010 recipient of the Fedora Scholarship and administrated the scholarship the next year.
