I'm a full-time employed developer who loves to work on free open source software in my own time. I've got so much from the FOSS world both personally and professionally - I wouldn't be able to build such awesome things without standing on the shoulders of giants!

My main areas of interest right now are cross-platform tools I write in Go, modules in Perl and Go, Linux and random stuff. I tend to try and find open tools to achieve whatever I need and if they don't exist I like to make them. I also like to help people out. 😄

My chosen FOSS license is MIT because I want to give users as much freedom as possible in what they do with my projects. If you've got a good reason to make it closed-source then that's fine with me but I'd encourage you to keep things open and contribute upstream for the most added value!
