Bens Linux journey started around late 2002. Frustrated with some issues on using Windows XP and starting a new application administrator role at his university where some services were being run on FreeBSD. A friend introduced him to Red Hat Linux when Ben decided it made sense to get more practice with Unix-like operating systems. He switched to Fedora full-time in 2006 after he landed a job as a Linux system administrator.

Since then his career has included system administration people management support engineering development and marketing. Several years ago he even earned a Master8217s degree in IT Project Management. The variety of experience has helped Ben learn how to work with different groups of people. A lot of what I8217ve learned has come from making mistakes. When you mess up communication you hopefully do a better job the next time.
