I've been a Debian developer since 2001, maintaining packages of man-db, groff, OpenSSH, Parted, debconf, and many others. I was a founding member of the core development team for Ubuntu in 2004, and worked on Launchpad from 2015 to 2023. Starting in 2024, I'm a freelancer, currently spending most of my time with the excellent folks at Freexian.

I currently plan to put any donations towards time spent maintaining man-db and debconf, and working on improvements to the Debian bug tracking system.
