    I've worked in open source software development since 1999. I now work for Salesforce on their Heroku product, doing devops and SRE work. I previously worked for Canonical for 6+ years on the Ubuntu kernel, and for Red Hat for 8 years in a variety of roles including embedded systems development, Level 3 support, and as maintainer for their security packages.

    Before that, I worked in many diverse areas, including air defense, 3D graphics driver development, network drivers, development of internet appliances, and Rock and Roll special effects.

    I'm an Electrical Engineer by education, and an amateur radio operator, and my hobby activities are generally related to electronics, amateur radio, and open source software. My call sign in AI4QR, and I'm mostly active on the air on HF.

    My main radio in the shack is a Flex 6700 Software Defined Radio.
