For my day job, I work on enabling system boot for Red Hat. As such, my focuses are upstream development and Fedora/RHEL packaging. In a previous role, I was Red Hat's Kerberos development lead, and still chair the IETF Common Authentication Technology Next Generation (kitten) working group. I was originally hired at Red Hat in 2013 as an intern.
I work primarily in C, though I'm also happy in Python, various Assemblies, Haskell, Standard ML, and various Lisps.
For human languages, I speak English (native/professional), Spanish (intermediate), Norwegian Bokmål (beginner), and Classical Latin (possibly atrophied).
Outside work, I enjoy playing loud guitar, fermenting things, hiking/camping, biking, growing plants, and generally being outdoors.
I have a weakness for retro Apple hardware (m68k/early powerpc eras), though I'm not a collector. My regular keyboard is an Apple Extended II; also on that ADB adapter is a Kensington TurboMouse. Previously I've also operated a AppleTalk/LocalTalk network for printing. Using old / severely underspec'd hardware in modern computing environments is how I got started with Linux.

The badge artwork is beautiful, and the badge integration took work to put together. However, it is my belief that badges (and competitive gamification in general) are long-term detrimental to well-being. I have therefore not linked them here.
