Hi, my name is Chris Roberts and I live in Toledo, Ohio. EST Timezone.  My Fedora Account System (FAS) username is chrisroberts, and my IRC nick is croberts.

I learned about the Fedora Marketing team through the wiki page and through Fedora IRC chat, and am interested in joining because I enjoy spreading the word about Fedora and contributing any way I can. I am currently part of the Fedora Docs project and love it. I enjoy contributing in that way, I would like to be able to branch out and help make people aware of Fedora as well. 
This is the first Marketing project I have worked on, and I am looking to learn and help where needed. 

My skills, which I hope to utilize in Fedora Marketing, include:
(Marketing Skills) - Good people and customer service skills, friendly and outgoing Knowledge of how to get articles published with some of the local free press newspapers around Toledo and the surrounding suburbs.
(Other Skills) - Good general knowledge of Fedora, and willingness to learn.
I would like to learn any skills that could help me be a better contributor to the Fedora Marketing Project. 

When I'm not working on Fedora, I am currently attending University of Toledo to obtain my bachelors in Computer Science. I also work at a local ISP providing technical support. A couple of people at my work have shown interest in starting a Linux group for Toledo, and we are looking to focus on Fedora.  

One of the goals I have for the Fedora Project are to get more user awareness in the public. When talking to people just in general about Linux the distro that usually comes up is Ubuntu. When asking if they have tried Fedora, most reply back with I have heard about it but never tried it. I then go on to tell them about our community and different reasons why they should try it. Most people I have talked to about Fedora, who went and installed it, have made the switch. 

Please help me get started!
Chris Roberts
