You can find my official bio here. I work for Red Hat as the manager of the Fedora Engineering team. I joined the company in February 2008 and until July 2010, I served as the Fedora Project Leader and chairman of the Fedora Project Board. Nowadays in what little spare time I have, I dabble in the following Fedora bits:
- Merciless and sometimes foolhardy wiki gardening
- Give bits of advice and help to the FPL as a member of the "ex-FPL club"
- Work on my own PulseCaster project (it's available in Fedora of course!)
- Maintain Fedora packages
I participate in the Fredericksburg (VA) Linux Users Group (FredLUG), which meets twice monthly in my hometown.
I was a founding member of the Fedora Project Board as a volunteer contributor, and served the community there from April 2006 to July 2007. I've been involved in the Fedora Project since 2003.
In the past, I've also worked on these (now obsolete) documents:
- Installation Guides for FC4, FC5
- SELinux FAQ for FC5
- Yum Software Management for FC3, FC4
I no longer maintain the following packages:
These are deprecated because of changes over time to Fedora. Currently these still appear in CVS, but may eventually become wistful memories.
- USB-Hotplug Tutorial
- Mirror Tutorial for FC2
- Web Publishing to docs.fedoraproject.org -- This subject is now covered in the Documentation Guide.

As a Contributor
- Provide the odd low-maintenance package such as non-critical add-ons, where my programming skill (or lack thereof) is not a limiting factor.
- Approach issues from the perspective of a general productivity computer user so that Fedora maintains a welcoming environment for everyone.
- Be an example for others in dealing with other people in a constructive, friendly way at all times.
