I've been using Ubuntu since Dapper, and try to contribute through the Absolute Beginners forum on Ubuntuforums.org. I really enjoy helping new users make the transition smoothly. I also help out with testing during late Alpha/Beta of new releases, something which I intend to get much more involved in through the QA team's community outreach efforts.
I'm an engineer working for a UK passenger train company. Previously I was an armament technician in the Royal New Zealand Air Force. I live in Kent, UK and am married and a father of one.
