Hi! My day job is working as the Network Specialist (Systems Administrator) for the Mathematics Department at Kansas State University. Using EPEL at work is what originally brought me to the Fedora Project, but I'm always looking for ways to contribute in my free time. My first Linux desktops were installed with RedHat Linux 9 and Fedora Core 2. I also work on Centpkg for the CentOS project.

Things I do in Fedora

  • {Co,}Maintain Packages in EPEL and Fedora proper
  • Member of EPEL EpSCO (2014)
