Currently work as Open Source Lead Partner Solutions Architect at Amazon Web Services. RHCA #805007392628032

I am most helpful answering questions or solving problems involving Cloud systems and the use of support tools on Fedora and Fedora Cloud images. I also took over packaging the python-botocore and awscli from Kevin Fenzi.

I participate in a weekly symposium for IT professionals who are enthusiastic about FLOSS every Saturday Morning in Austin. As a group, we discuss whatever problems we are facing in our work and home use of Linux. We meet at Epoch Coffee, in the Village on the North side of Austin and the group participation is open to you.

My personal project interests are in emacs, fedora cloud, and python support. I am currently working on packaging ec2-instance-connect for Fedora.
