About me

I started using Fedora as my first Linux distribution in 2014 (tried bunch of them but kept coming back to it). After being "a fedora advocate and an ambassador" in different LUGs, conferences for a while, I met Sumantro (Fedora QA team member) who guided me to my first contribution to Fedora QA. After a few months of contribution, I got a chance to intern for the team.

I joined Community Platform Engineering team in 2018 and since then, I have been working on Fedora Infrastructure (and CentOS Infrastructure).

I participate in Fedora community efforts outside of my day job.

  • Mentored project lead, Mindshare committee member
  • Fedora Diversity and Inclusion advisor to Fedora council
  • generally you will find me lurking in a lot of places
