Age: 25

A young professional, trying to play with and learn as many things as I can. I've spent some time as a server monkey, playing with virtualization, networks, and Active Directory (yuck). I've been a Linux user for nearly a decade, and am pretty comfortable with the tcsh and bash shells. I've also been known to knock out a timely Perl script or two (see http://xkcd.com/208/), but it doesn't always end well for me (see http://xkcd.com/1171/).

I'm currently working on software development (primarily C++) and Linux systems administration.
