I have been a Fedora user since 2010 and became a package maintainer in 2018 after playing around with rpm packaging at a part time job at university. In the meantime I have picked up a bunch of additional packages for maintenance and joined a few SIGs. Currently I am mostly involved in helping shape the i3 spin of Fedora.
After studying astrophysics, I joined the IT world and first worked on embedded devices and later switched to a more all-round role as part of the developer engagement program. Currently I am building operating system images, develop editor extensions and implement tests at my dayjob.
I always strive to increase the collaboration between distributions, at the moment mostly targeting Fedora and openSUSE. I also play around with non-x86 architectures, mostly with ARM based machines and a RISCV experimental board.
