You can find my official bio here.

I joined Red Hat in February 2008, and until July 2010, I served as the Fedora Project Leader and chairman of the Fedora Project Board. Starting in 2010, until launch in June 2014, I worked as a development coordinator for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Since late 2013, I've been the manager of the Fedora Engineering team. I spend most of my Fedora time providing light direction, internal and administrative support, and roadblock-clearing for the team members. I see my job as helping them (1) be maximally successful at their jobs, and (2) develop as Red Hat associates and professionals.

Nowadays in what little spare time I have, I dabble in the following Fedora bits:

I'm a member (inactive) 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.
