I'm currently a software engineer at Red Hat working in the OpenJDK team on the IcedTea project. I'm also in the process of writing up my PhD at the University of Sheffield. I started using GNU/Linux in 1998, and as my sole OS in early 2002. As part of this community, and a developer, I try and contribute back to those who have given me my freedom. My central focus over the last four years has been Free Java and the GNU Classpath project, along with associated upstreams, such as GCJ, the Mauve test suite, Kaffe, JamVM, Cacao and Jikes RVM. I'm now also involved in the OpenJDK project by virtue of IcedTea and Sun's Innovation Challenge Awards, and have also recently being acting as a secondary maintainer to Mark Wielaard on the GNU Classpath project, being responsible for our last two releases (0.96 and 0.97). Through this work, I obtained a position at Red Hat in October 2008 and am now working full time as an IcedTea/OpenJDK Core Developer.
