I'm an American who's found a better life in NZ and have become a kiwi (to the extent that's possible for a yank). I have been active in many circles over the years including: free and open source software, Christchurch business, swing dancing scene, local music scene (well, a small part of it), ultimate (frisbee), cycling advocacy, wine/beer/coffee appreciation, social activism, back country tramping, fly fishing crew, aikido, academia, woodworking cadre, self-sufficiency enthusiasts, and backyard politicians.
Most of my extra curricular activities have been (relatively contentedly) curtailed of late due to the demands of a young family.
I can make that waterdrop sound on my cheek like Cameron in Ferris Buehler's Day Off. Been using Linux (exclusively) since 1994. Danced for money. Done beat boxing on stage. Crazy-flexible (in the physical sense). Really enjoy being a husband (civil union) and papa. Won fairly serious awards in at least 3 totally unrelated fields of endeavour. Serious about living up to my principles. Started my own company so I'd be subject to no one's incompetence other than my own. I spread joy and confusion, but not necessarily in equal measure. I have a lot of energy to contribute to the right causes.
