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.
I try to be an active participant in the Ruby community – writing gems, contributing to core, and trolling the fora – and the IETF – especially HTTPbis and the Applications & Real-Time Area working groups.
When I'm not on a computer I'm a father to two beautiful human-children, husband to a beautiful woman, occasional stroke-giver to a cat, and random stranger to the unwashed masses. For fun I play guitar (not very well), hike (not very often), and read (not very sociably). Sometimes I paint space marines.
