Who I am

I'm a volunteer Rawhide tester, bug reporter, and linux enthusiast. Professionally, I'm a graduate student in Electrical Engineering at California Polytechnic State University, and I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Computer Engineering also from Cal Poly. I am interested in digital design, ASIC, computer architecture, VLSI design integration, mixed signal and programmable logic design (and am currently job-seeking). I have also been researching lead-free solder reliability, and electronic component packaging, as part of my thesis project.

My local linux users group is Cal Poly LUG (CPLUG) [1]

What I do

I test software and report bugs. My hardware profiles are listed below and I am willing to test any hardware specific bugs related to those machines.

Fedora is my chosen distribution and has been since it emerged from the Redhat Linux and projects. I have used Redhat Linux since 2001 prior to using Fedora. I have experience with a variety of distributions but find they just do not offer what I am looking for -- always the latest linux software without locally compiling. SELinux is also a major advantage of Fedora I am very excited about.
