I first used Fedora Core 1 (or was it 2?) back in college. We had a large number of IBM desktops in the lab and could not get X to start under another distribution. Looking for an alternative, we came across Fedora. Fast forward to today. I currently use Fedora 23 as my daily driver. I have used and supported a number of other distributions and operating systems, but Fedora best aligns with my needs and philosophy. I want to take on a more involved role in the community and plan to update this page regularly. I am working towards becoming an Ambassador. I also plan on contributing to other areas of the Fedora Project in due course. Fun times ahead!

About

My name is Ross. I love empowering users and helping others overcome their technology challenges. I work as Director of IT for a Retail organization where I get to lead a great team of professionals and research, implement, and support an array of different technologies. I hold certifications in the networking, PCI, and virtualization fields. I am passionate about free software and spreading the word about its benefits.

Fedora

I first used Fedora Core 1 (or was it 2?) back in college. We had a large number of IBM desktops in the lab and could not get X to start under another distribution. Looking for an alternative, we came across Fedora. Fast forward to today. I currently use Fedora 26 as my daily driver. I have used and supported a number of other distributions and operating systems, but Fedora best aligns with my needs and philosophy.

I am currently a Fedora Regional Ambassador (East) for the North America region. My first event representing Fedora was SELF 2017. It was great meeting other friends in person, spreading the word about the project, and interacting with new and long-time users of our distribution.

I am also a member of the QA and Translation teams, although I am currently learning the ropes in those areas and have yet to contribute.

Fun times ahead!
