Hello! I’m Richard.

I’ve used SUSE/openSUSE since 2003, finding myself helping out more and more as time went on.

In 2013 I joined SUSE to work as a QA Engineer. I am currently the QA Technical Lead for openQA 2014 saw me becoming the Chairman of the openSUSE Project.

I’ve done most work with openSUSE’s GNOME, Marketing, and Artwork teams, and generally causing trouble by trying to fix things wherever I think I can.
