I'm a web/interface designer for a fortune 25 company in the U.S. I'm an avid user of Inkscape and an advocate of Open Source Software. I'm really interested in contributing to the community - although I'm not a programmer, I believe there is plenty that I can offer.
Even though we're only working on 0.48 and it's seem that there are to many feature requests to see a v1.0 anytime soon, Inkscape is already an amazing product and everyone involved is owed a lot of respect.
So anyway, I'll do my best to be as active as I can with what time I have available. In the meantime, check out some of my work at http://willworkforart.net.
