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 team of professionals and help coordinate, 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.
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 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!
