About me

I am a Fedora Project contributor since September 2015. I work(ed) across various parts of the community. I am finishing my Networking and Systems Administration BS with a double-minor in Free and Open Source Software and Free Culture and Women's and Gender Studies (estimated Dec. 2019).

I first used Linux (and Fedora) in December 2013. Fedora 20 was my first Linux distribution.

I'm typically idling on Freenode IRC (IRC: jwf). Feel free to ping me and say hi!
