About me

I'm a student at the Rochester Institute of Technology, majoring in Networking & Systems Administration. I intend to graduate in 2019. I started using Linux (and Fedora) in December 2013. I am extremely passionate about free and open source software and I try to champion it anywhere I can. As part of my time at RIT, I plan to pursue the FOSS Minor as part of my degree.

I'm generally idling somewhere on IRC around the clock (IRC: jwf), so if you see me, feel free to ping me and say hi!

Activities Outside Fedora

In addition to working on Fedora, I also have managed my own Minecraft server network called CrystalCraftMC for the past four years. I am a community moderator for SpigotMC, a free and open source Minecraft server software. I have a large span of knowledge surrounding the Minecraft open source community as a whole.

At my university, I am currently the president of RITlug (RIT Linux Users Group). I am strongly involved with the FOSS@MAGIC initiative by helping promote open source across my university.

I'm also a coffee fanatic and a former barista. I support Direct Trade Coffee!
