* not everything everything, just some stuff I do at work
I am a computer scientist by qualification, software engineer by trade, and linguistic, typographic and literary dilettante by bent. I like playing Dungeons & Dragons, reading Terry Pratchett, and wearing t-shirts with obscure "geek culture" references.
When I'm not on a computer I'm a father to two beautiful human-children, husband to a beautiful woman, food-bringer to a guinea-pig, and random stranger to the unwashed masses. For fun I play guitar (not very well), hike (not very often), and read (not very sociably).
