Short Biography

I am a South African student, currently reading a BSc in Computer Science. I first became involved with Debian at Debconf16 in Cape Town, where I worked as part of the video and local orga teams. I intend to continue being a part of the video team and continue improving how we run video for debconf and other conferences.

I am a part of a team that maintains a slightly customised version of Debian called AIMS desktop and our intention is always to upstream everything that we can into mainline Debian. Thus I maintain several GNOME Shell extensions. I also maintain diskscan as the original maintainer had orphaned it and I feel that it is a very useful package that should be kept up to date in Debian.
