Now

(Inspired by Derek Siver's /now page movement)

I'm a husband and new dad, to a daughter born in September 2016. Being a dad is very awesome. Seeing a little human grow is the most amazing thing.

When I'm not husband-ing or dad-ing, I'm working full-time at Culture Amp. I am doing a lot of Elixir work, with touches of Ruby. I am going to be starting a new role there soon as the Junior Devleoper Program Lead, teaching Ruby (and maybe Elixir!). More news on that front soon.

I'm mentoring / advising some juniors at the moment and share my answers to their questions so that other juniors can read them (and it saves me time having to write them all out again!)

I am writing Joy of Elixir in my free time. This book is a gentle introduction to programming for first-timers, teaching them the ways of Elixir. Why I'm writing it is best explained by it about page.

I'm the current Secretary of Ruby Australia. This mostly involves keeping minutes for the association's committee meetings, but also involves some light paperwork and other duties.

I've quit maintaining my open source projects, but you might see me dabble around here and there.
