I first got introduced to Open Source Software by a friend, who gave me a machine in 94 with Slackware installed on it. From that point on i was hooked. Bounced around between the Slackware and OpenSuSe communitues before finally finding Puppy Linux. I became involved in the Puppy Linux Project in 2008, and have been a member of that community ever since. I've worked in IT most of my adult life, aside from a short stint in the USAF. In 2011, I co-founded Obsidian Security Services, a small security consulting firm providing boutique services to business clients. In 2013, I joined the ranks of Jupiter Broadcasting as a producer for the largest and continually running Linux podcast, 'Linux Action Show' and its spin off show 'Linux Unplugged'.
