Hi everyone! My name is James and I'm a software engineer, hobbyist sysadmin, and 2022 Computer Science graduate from the University of British Columbia.
My first interactions with FOSS came about in ~2013 through playing with and hosting IRC bots, later shifting to working on Linux more generally as I deployed it both on servers and my own machines. Originally a Windows user, my reasons for volunteering in Debian are akin to why I made my own switch: championing a freedom to tinker as well as personal privacy.
In Debian specifically, I've been a contributor since 2015 and a DM since 2018. Right now, I work on on a handful of packages including variety, icoextract, libqalculate, and lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings. For the first two projects, I have also done plenty of work upstream as a (co)maintainer.
My packaging focus so far has been on desktop programs and themes, including several few Xfce-adjacent programs, and I hope to continue polishing and expanding Debian's collection of these.
