I'm a programmer, systems manager, linux systems administrator and DevOps engineer. I have a bachelor degree on Computer Systems Engineering and a Masters on IT Management.
I started to use Linux in 1998 while was attending a webmaster training and the course required students to bring up a web server using Slackware and NCSA. This experience in that particular point of my life time has set a milestone on my career. I never looked back.
I contribute in the Fedora Project since May 2008 as an ambassador spreading the voice of the project in my community and my country, speaking at colleges, events and users groups. I've also participated distributing Fedora media to locations without broadband access. Promoting Fedora has allowed me to speak at international events like the Southern California Linux Expo (Scale)
I participates in his local Linux User Group called gluch. He also writes a fedora related blog which is replicated in Fedora Planet and Planeta Linux México. I'm interested in mentoring on Fedora and FOSS and has been invited to give some lectures on those issues as well as to participate in Install Festivals and other activities. I contributed to create the first Master program on Free Software and taught at the University for several courses.
If you don't see me hanging around with my laptop, you might see me striking some pins in the bowling alley, shooting some caroms, racing his HO cars in his slotracing circuit or tasting some delicious food in one of the establishments of his wide catalog.
I still try to find the time to hang out with myfamily and to be grateful for all the little details my life is composed of.
