I’m Dale Ghent, a Systems Engineer living in the Washington, DC area. I tend to focus on the illumos-based operating systems OmniOSce and SmartOS on a wide variety of x86 hardware. My experience with these, Solaris and other UNIX-like operating systems such as the BSD family and various Linux distributions stretches back to 1994.

When not at my day job, I enjoy working towards my private pilots’ license, amateur astronomy, DJing, traveling, and photography. The photos featured in the header of this site are taken by me and can be seen in the gallery.
