Activities within the Fedora Project


I'm a Fedora Ambassador sponsored by Clint Savage
My main goals are to spread the use of Fedora and Free Software to my school, my friends, my family and the greater Phoenix area as a whole. Whether this is through my past involvement in Phoenix LUG, or in setting up events such as ABLEconf, I strive to bring greater awareness to our great operating system and community.

  • Events I attend(ed)
    • 2010
      • 16Jan10 - 20Jan10 San Diego, California: Camp KDE
      • 27Jan10 Phoenix AZ: Phoenix LUG West Side meeting KDE/Fedora presentation
    • 2009


As a member of Fedora's KDE SIG, I work to improve and promote the KDE Plasma Desktop environment on top of Fedora Linux. Naturally it's an easy job ;) When I remember to (which unfortunately isn't often enough) I write the KDE beat for Fedora weekly news. I'm also involved in KDE's Promotions team.


I'm involved in Fedora's marketing team. I work in marketing mostly to complement my ambassador jobs, as I believe the two groups could work better if they were more closely integrated. I helped to organize the Marketing FAD 2010 and will be attending it in March. I am also interested in generating marketing materials for Spins, as they don't get the time of day (in terms of marketing) that they deserve.

I am also a member of the development team of Fedora-tour.

Package Maintainer

I'm a Package Maintainer sponsored by Kevin Kofler
I usually package software I find interesting and actually use.
