I originally started as a C programmer (long time ago), but branched out wide since then. I was employee#25 at MySQL AB (until June 2007), doing Documentation, Community Relations, Training and Support Engineering. I am the founding director of Open Query Pty Ltd, delivering MySQL/MariaDB DBA/Support services. I'm also active in various Australian OSS-related organisations and initiatives, regularly speak at conferences and other events. I hack around in C, PHP, Arduino, Raspberry Pi.
