Dan is a long-time system administrator – he first installed Linux on his home PC in 1995 and never looked back. A veteran of the original dotcom bubble, he founded a web hosting company in the late 90’s, and managed it from inception to acquisition. Since then, he has worked in a variety of environments from start-ups to global corporations, including as an administrator at Ubisoft Montréal, and as a lecturer at the University of Winnipeg.

Today, Dan is a web engineer at Mozilla, a role that allows him to work on a wide variety of cutting-edge open source technologies at very large scales.
