Short Biography


I started about in 2004 using Debian through a friend of mine. Around 2006 I joined Debian on IRC and was learning more about Debian and also started helping out other users (which I do to this day).

In 2010 I started working as a System Administrator, using Debian on all my systems. For work I ended up packaging and backporting a lot of things for customers, so I got used to the packaging tools, although it took until 2015 until I started contributing to packaging efforts within Debian (rp-pppoe and Ansible).

In 2015 I went to Debconf Heidelberg. I also made the trip to Montreal in 2017, and to Curitiba in 2019, which was an opportunity for me to meet a lot of great Debian people in person (hlieberman, zlatan, paultag, pabs, infinity0, h01ger, rhonda, gregoa, phil, and many more I forgot to mention).

I maintain Ansible and packages that Ansible depends on in some way, as well as thinkfan. I plan on joining the DSA in long-term (even though they're using Puppet ;).
