I'm an Apache Servicemix committer!

I first started using Servicemix in the fall of 2006 while it was still in Apache Incubator. My first few patches began appearing soon after on the project issue tracker in the winter of 2007. I submitted these patches initially just for fun and continued submitting the patches while I worked on other projects. As of the summer of 2008 I had the opportunity to make Servicemix my main focus, and its been a fun ride ever since.

This is my first committer status on an Apache project so this will be a new learning experience. I have been a long time supporter of open source and look forward to the adventures ahead.
