I'm a software developer (currently focused on Python), living in Australia (currently focused on Sydney).

I am an on-again/off-again moderator of Skeptics.SE. (I was Pro Tem Moderator, I handed in my diamond when the first elections were held, and then ran in the second elections about a year later.)
