Short Biography

I have been involved with the free software movement since I joined the Gentoo security team when I was attending high school, helping coordinate security releases and eventually becoming the lead of the kernel security project. I strongly believe that free software not only more secure software, but fundamentally better software.

Though I've used Debian since the late 2000s, I first got involved with Debian as a contributor a couple of years ago when I talked to the pkg-perl team about helping them out with a few packages that I was using at work. The pkg-perl team was an amazing introduction to Debian: the organization, and packaging in particular. Since joining the pkg-perl team, I've helped with a bunch of team uploads, as well as adopting a variety of perl packages. Outside the team, I've also adopted or co-adopted a couple of other packages - ansible, a server orchestration tool; nanomsg, a communication scalability library; and sysdig, a tool for investigating and dissecting activity on systems.
