I've been using Fedora since Fedora 5 but just started getting involved with the community as a Red Hat employee working on Fedora QA. Before coming to Red Hat, I was working in test and specifically on test automation framework development.

My interests include TDD, context driven testing, DRM Free Media, patent-unencumbered codecs and pretty much anything shiny that catches my eye.
