Short Biography

I am a Free and Open Source Software enthusiast from Nepal, a Himalayan country in South Asia. Regarding my journey, I came to know about Debian and Free software when I was in my high school in year 2011. My first distribution that booted in my machine was Fedora which interested me into GNU/Linux. After that, I came to know about Ubuntu and instantly fell in love with it and started using it as my daily driver, started tinkering with it. I even came to develop my own customized distribution based on Debian during my high school days, thanks to the wide helpful community and the free software movement.

Later, I joined the local communities involved in Free and Open Source Software in Nepal, few of them which I am still actively involved are FOSS Nepal Community, FOSS Chitwan Community and WordPress Bharatpur Community. What I love about Debian is the collaborative work done by awesome people across the world to create such an outstanding distribution of GNU/Linux.

In 2020, I started a project as a hobby called UbuntuDDE Remix which acted as a pointer to contribute in Debian packaging. I am currently actively contributing to pkg-deepin-team (a Deepin Debian Team) which collaboratively maintains the packages for Deepin Desktop Environment in Debian. I look forward to continue maintaining existing Deepin and Golang packages and new ones required by the Deepin Desktop Environment.

I am volunteering and want to volunteer my time in Debian project so that I can put my effort in distributing the free software packages that interests to the community and myself.
