Work in Fedora

A generalist, a package maintainer and a provenpackager. In the past I heavily contributed to the Modularity & Host and Platform / Base Runtime efforts and the Perl ecosystem. I'm also a packaging sponsor; if you'd like to contribute to Fedora don't hesitate to contact me -- I'd be happy to help you out.

A past member of FESCo serving as the engineerng representative on the Fedora Council.
