As a software developer, I’m interested in creating clean, efficient, and open applications.  I contribute to Xfce and Xubuntu development and strive to write high-quality, maintainable code that others can extend and build upon.

I am currently the Xubuntu Technical Lead and an Xfce core developer.  My Ubuntu contributions can be found at my wiki page.  Find me at the #xubuntu-devel channel on Freenode. Look for bluesabre.
