I work for [http://redhat.com/ Red Hat] as an engineering operations manager.  I joined the company in February 2008 and until July 2010, I served as the [[Project Leader|Fedora Project Leader]] and chairman of the [[Board| Fedora Project Board]]. I also dabble in the following bits:
+
I work for an MNC in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. I am an OpenSource Promoter.
* The [[Docs Project | Documentation team]], as a writer, editor, and part-time balladeer
+
* Maintainer of fedora-release-notes and [[#Package_Maintenance|a few other useful packages]]
+
* Help with the [[Marketing]] team
+
* Merciless and sometimes foolhardy [[wiki gardening]]
+
 
+
I help drive the [http://fredlug.tux.org/ Fredericksburg (VA) Linux Users Group]  (FredLUG), which meets twice monthly in my hometown.
+
 
+
I was a founding member of the [[Board|Fedora Project Board]], and served the community there from April 2006 to July 2007.

+
 
+
