Why are you running for Council?

I am running for the Fedora Council for a few reasons, a big one is that Fedora has been a part of my life for over a decade and I am excited by the ways that the project has evolved and grown over that time. Additionally I am running because I want to continue to see Fedora focus on and enable Multiple Architecture support, finding ways to enable Fedora users and developers to work together to solve their own problems and build solutions for others.

Why should people vote for you?

People should vote for me if they would like to do new things in Fedora and would like to work with me to help break down barriers to contribution.

What do you want to accomplish as a member of the Fedora Council?

I plan to work to make sure that Fedora becomes the central platform for OKD, not just for x86_64 but also for all architectures that Fedora supports. I would like to work to make sure that Fedora’s policies enable people to experiment and try new things, to deliver Fedora in ways that enable users and developers to solve problems for themselves and share their solutions with the world.
