Hello world!

I'm Rick, a senior software and release engineer on the @ansible team at Red Hat. Before that, I worked on the Fedora Infrastructure team for 8 years and volunteered for 2 years before that. I currently lead the Fedora Websites project and hold a position on the Fedora Mindshare committee.

Bragging Rights

I hold the following certifications:

  • Red Hat Certified System Administrator
  • Red Hat Certified Engineer
  • Red Hat Certified Specialist in Ansible Automation
  • Red Hat Certified Specialist in Containers for Kubernetes
  • Red Hat Certified Specialist in Ansible Best Practices


My software-related research interests are primarily focused around functional programming and type theory. I'd love to see the general quality of software in our industry increase, and I believe that formal verification through type theory is the leading edge toward that. Feel free to talk to me about these things at any time. :-)

I have a plethora of other interests including swing and blues dancing, historical linguistics and etymology (I have been teaching myself Latin), amateur radio, musical instruments (namely piano and upright bass).

I lead the project (a URL shortener which also provides some other bits of information), and the custom framework that backs it, along with a small but tight group of friends who help with maintenance and respond to abuse reports.


I have LinkedIn if that's your thing. I also have Twitter.
