Short Biography

After a failed attempt to install some distribution that came with a book, I borrowed a copy of SuSE 5.3 from my maths teacher. Coming from windows, the concept of package management was intriguing. I stayed with SuSE for some time until a friend of mine mentioned Debian to me. After installing 2.2r2, I was hooked. Since then, I've been using Debian exclusively on all my systems and all Linux systems I administer for work.

In 2010, I packaged minitube for Debian, adopted glabels in 2012 and started co-maintaining blogofile in 2013. Furthermore, I am maintaining fstl and tio.

Besides my packaging work, I would like to help around -mentors and maybe sponsor package uploads.
