I’m Elizabeth, the CHAOSS Community Manager :wave: I live in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA (go Bengals!) and I’m a Grandma :tada: (My granddaughter calls me Manka :joy:).

I have been in open source for a long time and I care a lot about diversity, equity, and inclusion. :heart:

When I’m not at the computer I’m out in the woods and meadows as a nature photographer. :camera_flash: :sunflower: :chipmunk:

I’m so grateful to be part of this community!

Hi everyone :wave:

I’m Georg. My pronouns are he/him. My name is German for George and I like to joke that Germans removed the second “e” because of German efficiency. :sweat_smile: If you want to remember how to say my name, think of a big, mean orc with a pride flag (or picture this gay orc). :rainbow_flag::troll:

I’m originally from Germany and today live in Omaha, Nebraska, USA with my family.

I’m a co-founder of CHAOSS, co-author of our first metrics, co-host of our community podcast CHAOSScast, co-organizer of CHAOSScon, and board member.

When I’m not on the computer, I like to read fiction, play board games, and go hot air ballooning.

Hi all! I’m Josh, my pronouns are he/they, and I’m a community organizer, gardener, cat dad, and open source strategist based on Coast Miwok land in Petaluma, California :wave:

Hello everyone

Maryblessing Okolie here. My pronouns are she/her, born and currently living in Lagos, Nigeria.
I am a community architect and coordinator, I am also an opensource fan girl.

I love cats (not common in my place of origin :sweat_smile:). When I’m not reading, researching or doing community stuff I play games, CODM, watch movies or just listen to cool songs.

Safe to say CHAOSS is the only OS project I’m actively contributing to and currently, I’m the community’s tour guide person. So, just in case you’re struggling to find your way around stuff here, I am just a DM away.
