[edit] Interests

I come to Fedora via my work at OLPC, where my interest in community-based QA and support began. As someone with an (electrical and computer) engineering background with a passion for self-directed learning, my strongest interest is in bridging the worlds of undergraduate and graduate education (particularly for engineering and business) and open-source practice. In addition to hacking code and hardware, I also enjoy building university-based programs, running (and speaking and teaching at) conferences, unconferences, and hackathons, wrangling wiki pages, mailing lists, documentation, and curricula, and whatever else it takes to get the job done. I spent 2.5 years at Red Hat as a member of the Community Leadership Team focused on both Fedora and education outreach, which took the form of working with the Teaching Open Source community.

[edit] Current goals and projects

No big Fedora projects at the moment - but I'm open to ideas. ;-)
