About Me


Hello! Glad you could join me on this little corner of the Internet.

My name is Andrew Siemen. I’ve been a passionate FOSS advocate and Linux user for almost 10 years, and a ‘professional tinkerer’ for much longer.

I currently live in the awesome city of Durham, North Carolina where I work as a Linux SysAdmin. I spent 6 years in the beautiful (albeit snowy!) city of Houghton, Michigan where I attended Michigan Technological University studying Computer Networking and Systems Administration.

These are my ramblings.

During my time at Michigan Tech I worked on a capstone project wherein we tried to figure out if cooling servers using mineral oil is worth the cost, worth the effort, and potentially more effective than traditional air cooling methods.

In my spare time I enjoy playing various musical instruments (including guitars of various forms, trumpet, drums, and a smidgen of vocal talent), kayaking, bicycling, bowling, and playing with my two cats.
