I’m a FOSS enthusiast who dropped out of the Computer Science program at Oregon State University to take an amazing job as a DevOps Engineer for Mozilla Research in Portland, Oregon.
FIRST got me into robotics and programming back in 2006, and I’ve been an amateur electrical and mechanical engineer ever since. The LUG and Open Source Lab started my career in open source software development and Linux systems administration in 2010, and those topics have since become my career.
I attended Oregon State University from September 2010 to June 2015. In 2011 I spent my summer as a software developer on the Ganeti Web Manager project at the OSU Open Source Lab; in 2012 I spent the summer doing Android software development at Intel; in the summer of 2013 I was a sysadmin at the OSL, and in 2014 I interned on the ops team at Urban Airship.
As well as spending a couple terms as a teaching assistant and peer mentor for the school of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 2013 and 2013, I founded the OSL’s Devops BootCamp sysadmin training program during the 2013-2014 school year and mentored its new student leaders in 2014-2015.
