About me

I am a Linux enthusiast and passionate openSUSE user from the middle of the Indian Ocean (20°2' S, 57°6' E).

I work as a Systems Architect for La Sentinelle Ltd and love talking about FOSS at local events. The Developers Conference of Mauritius is usually where I can be found enjoying coffee and/or beer with folks that I meet once a year.

I am in the openSUSE Election Committee and along with a few other passionate contributors from around the world, we make sure to run openSUSE elections as smoothly as possible.
