  • Hello, I'm a Red Hat employee. I work for the Brand Communications + Design group, which is a part of the Corporate Marketing department at Red Hat.
  • I can be found on the 4th floor of the Venture III building, Centennial Campus, in Raleigh, NC and my current job title is: producer.
  • If you've ever seen videos on Red Hat Magazine or about Fedora in the past year or so, that was probably some of my work. I do shooting, video editing, motion graphics, and rendering for most of our videos along with the help of others, such as: Napoleon Wright, Islam Elsedoudi, Mike Esser, Tim Kiernan, Kristin Hondros, Adrienne Yancy, Josh Gajownik, and Colin Dodd.
  • That's it for the shout-outs right now.
  • I have two tattoos. One is the Creative Commons logo, on my right wrist. The other is Banksy's girl holding bomb, on my left bicep.
