In 2018 I made the switch to Linux and never looked back. Since then I've been on a nonstop, transformative journey of discovery. And as one of the first 30 podcasters in the world, sharing that journey with the open source community through this medium is nothing short of a dream come true.
In addition to hearing about my latest Linux adventures here, you can find me at Forbes, where I cover the latest in Linux, open source and PC gaming news and technologies.
