Hello! 👋

I ❤️ open-source! I have been contributing to elementary OS in my spare time for almost 3 years and have always taken great pleasure in hunting down and fixing all manners of bugs that affect many people.

This bug hunt sometimes leads me upstream and my day job occasionally gives the opportunity to work on open-source software too. As a result, I have contributed to a number of other open-source projects, including; Ansible, AppStream, Flatpak, GNOME, Rundeck, and Vala.

I'm currently working hard on making Flatpak applications feel at home on elementary OS with projects like Sideload and Flatpak support in AppCenter.

My own projects:

  • Torrential, a torrent client for elementary OS
  • Clipped, a clipboard manager for elementary OS

Why sponsor me?

Sponsoring me is a great way to say thank you for the work I do for the open source community. My higher reward tiers give you the chance to follow updates on what I'm working on and guide me down a path of specific issues you'd like me to look into.

I'd like to continue making elementary OS even better, and any contribution you can make will help me fund my tea supplies required to work harder, faster and stronger.
