David Ross


I am originally from Australia, now living in London, and building an Open Source fitness platform. With a strong history in customer service, flagship retail management, staff training, and self-driven tech expertise. Reliant on open source projects (an everyday Linux user for almost a decade) I firmly recognize the importance of giving back to open source in anyway I can. Taking in many aspects of:

  • community building
  • diversity & inclusion
  • event support & management
  • supporting workshops
  • web technologies
  • documentation
  • and most recently developing knowledge in Rust

A regular contributor to Mozfest since 2014, I've been fortunate enough to be invited back as a wrangler in 2018, for the second year in a row. Other proof of my commitment to Mozilla:

  • Mozilla's Network 50
  • A-Frame workshops
  • London Privacy Lab
  • MDN contributor
  • Global Sprint (London sitehost 2018)
  • Open Leaders (Round 2 and mentor in rounds 4/5)
  • UK Community management

I've decided to step up in the current selection process for Reps Council, in Spring 2018. If chosen I'll put a consistent effort into amplifying your good work and strive to earn your respect as a fellow passionate Mozillian, not afraid to get stuck in. Vote for the bald guy!
