* What do you want to help out with?
I am in the wonderful position to be paid to work on open source. This

* Historical qualifications
I have been involved with Bugzilla since 2004 and most of my Perl
experience comes from working on this and Testopia. I have a degree in

have been involved in Linux and open source since 2000.
* What other technical projects have you worked on in the past?
In addition to Bugzilla, I am the project lead/developer/tester/support
of the Testopia project designed to extend Bugzilla to allow tracking of
test cases and related information.
I am also a member of the QA team for Bugzilla.
* What level and type of computer skills do you have?
I consider myself rather well versed in the world of computers and
computer networks in general. My primary interest has been in web

* Anything else you'd like to say.
When I am not hacking away at a keyboard, I am usually hacking away at
orcs and other monsters in one form or another (FFXI Gediminas on
Lakshmi) or playing with my kids. I too like to make music (we should
get together and jam sometime Max) and enjoy reading a good book once in
a blue moon.
