About me

I am a Fedora Project contributor since September 2015. I participate in various parts of the Fedora Community. I hold a Networking and Systems Administration B.S. with a double-minor in Free and Open Source Software and Free Culture and Women's and Gender Studies.

I first used Linux (and Fedora) in December 2013. Fedora 20 was my first-ever desktop Linux distribution! Read more about what I'm doing on my blog.

I am jwf on Freenode IRC. Don't be nervous to say hi!
