Hello! I am a computer consultant that works with various operating systems, including Fedora. I learned about Fedora (Core, at the time..) when Red Hat Linux was first discontinued back in 2003. I started with Fedora Core 4 on legacy hardware. I presently use Fedora 29 to demonstrate how useful open source systems can be and enjoy working with it.
I am very enthusiastic to assist people with maintaining their workstations, servers, networking, and other technology.
Prior experience includes support of the Openstack Magnum () project.
