Activities within Fedora
I have helped the Fedora project with marketing activities, specifically at OSCON 2012. I look forward to being a more active participant in the future.
I love to cook and make a mean chicken curry, though I'll make it vegan as needed. I studied Medieval English Literature and will happily discuss paleography and codicology for hours on end.
