I have over thirty years of Unix/Linux operating system expertise where I have been an author, inventor, open source contributor and leader, and a Texas licensed Professional Engineer in the field of Software Engineering.  I've worked at Purdue University, Texas Instruments, IBM, and now at Dell Technologies as a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff.   I made my first open source contribution thirty years ago to X11R4.   I'm the original author of groupmems in the shadow password package.   I was the chairman of the Linux Standard Base (LSB) that made "Linux" an ISO standard so that DISA and other government agencies could use it.   I was a co-founder of the Free Standards Group which is now the Linux Foundation.   I was a member of accessibility.linuxfoundation.org, www.gnome.org, and a staff member of the CAD Framework Initiative (CFI.org) standards body which is now Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2.org).

I strongly believe in the stewardship of open source, and I would like to continue my community contribution as a board member of OSI.
