I have been a GNU/Linux enthusiast since my early college days with keen interests in networking, cloud computing, self-hosting and operating systems. Having been diagnosed with an acute distro-hopping syndrome, I have tried a multitude of GNU/Linux distributions before settling for Fedora Workstation (and never moving away since). The use of leading-edge technologies, distribution as quick point releases and the support by a friendly diverse collective of users and contributors made me want to give back in a way that helps the community grow substantially. Being a proponent of free and open-source software, I advocate for equitable and inclusive participation in the projects that I help develop and maintain.

I had the opportunity to work full-time on free and open-source software when I joined Red Hat's Community Platform Engineering team in 2021. Since then, I have been helping with developing/maintaining projects and monitoring/administrating services on Fedora Infrastructure and CentOS Infrastructure. I have also been leading the efforts on revamping the workflow of managing our websites and application as being the lead of the Fedora Websites and Apps Team and an objective representative in the Fedora Council. To help with the mentorship efforts, I have also been a general mentor twice and a technical mentor once for the Outreachy internships and coordinated the community's participation in such programmes.
