I work for Red Hat as an engineering manager. I joined the company in February 2008 and until July 2010, I served as the Fedora Project Leader and chairman of the Fedora Project Board. Nowadays in what little spare time I have, I dabble in the following bits:
- Help with the Insight project
- Merciless and sometimes foolhardy wiki gardening
- Give bits of advice and help to the FPL as a member of the "ex-FPL club"
- Work on my own PulseCaster project (it's available in Fedora of course!)
- Maintain Fedora packages
I participate in the Fredericksburg (VA) Linux Users Group (FredLUG), which meets twice monthly in my hometown.
I was a founding member of the Fedora Project Board as a volunteer contributor, and served the community there from April 2006 to July 2007.
In the past, I've also worked on these (now obsolete) documents:
- Installation Guides for FC4, FC5
- SELinux FAQ for FC5
- Yum Software Management for FC3, FC4
I no longer maintain the following packages:
These are deprecated because of changes over time to Fedora. Currently these still appear in CVS, but may eventually become wistful memories.
- USB-Hotplug Tutorial
- Mirror Tutorial for FC2
- Web Publishing to docs.fedoraproject.org -- This subject is now covered in the Documentation Guide.

As a Contributor
- Provide the odd low-maintenance package such as non-critical add-ons, where my programming skill (or lack thereof) is not a limiting factor.
- Approach issues from the perspective of a general productivity computer user so that Fedora maintains a welcoming environment for everyone.
- Be an example for others in dealing with other people in a constructive, friendly way at all times.
