I am Sam

Sam I am

As you may have guessed, my name is Sam, also commonly known as wraeth in online communities. I'm a computer guy, music person and Linux enthusiast from Australia. I am a man1 of few words and many talents2, so here is a brief run down of me.

Despite my best efforts, I am yet to ride a kangaroo to work. :'-(


I'm from the eastern coast of New South Wales, Australia where I live close to the beach with my dog Rosie. I would like to say that I am studying for a Bachelor of Information Technology through online study, however time and other commitments have taken away my capacity to do so. I do spend what is probably an unreasonable amount of time on the Freenode IRC network, providing support to users in the #gentoo channel.

You can find me in places like the Gentoo Gitweb viewer or Github, or check out my whole one project in the Projects section. I also have a small collection of articles you may want to read in the Articles section. Then there's ...


I am a "technical consultant" working with enterprise applications running on both Linux and Windows server environments. I've done work ranging from the I.T. guy at a school to concrete prefabrication to reception and clerical duties, but have been in the I.T. industry for around ten years.

Not to mention ...


Yeah, that's a thing that I do now, too. You can find my profile on SoundCloud, check out the Music section, or play my latest track below.
