I am a simple ArchWiki Contributor with a limited interest in the Arch Forums. I am a history, anthropology, and foreign studies student, as well as a computer hobbyist who currently resides in Fairbanks, US-AK.
As my availability permits, I work on contributions to the ArchWiki. The amazing documentation was one of the earliest pulls that Arch Linux had for me and, I hope to similarly help others as they discover Arch and GNU/Linux.
After learning Arch Linux originally, I moved away from it. I have since come back by way of Korora and Fedora (after a long stint in Debian-based land) and I have no intention of leaving again. I love Arch Linux's flexibility, and I find it just as easy as any other distribution once I have it configured to my taste. In fact, the aforementioned flexibility often makes enacting complex customizations much, much easier.
My current prime area of focus is Btrfs.
