Short Biography

The roots of my journey to Debian began with the launch of the FreedomBox project in 2010. Although I was using Fedora at the time, my interest in this project led me to switch to Ubuntu, and eventually to Debian in 2012, in order to have a proper development environment to contribute to this project. I began actively contributing to FreedomBox project in 2014, and became a co-maintainer in 2015.

Since 2017, I have helped as a "release manager" for the project, uploading new releases to Debian every 2 weeks. Along the way, I have begun to co-maintain several python module packages, and report bugs and contribute patches to the various application and infrastructure packages that FreedomBox relies on. Most recently, I have been active in the PHP team, in order to increase the number of web apps available in Debian.

I live in the metro Detroit area of Michigan, USA.
