Pinned toot


I'm Dan. Originally from the UK, I've been living in Kingston, ON since March 2017.

I love listening to music (I have an eclectic taste, but metal and classical are my true loves), reading, coding, and watching wrestling!

I work from home as a software engineer on the Ubuntu :ubuntu: Server team. My focus in that team is on cloud-init and curtin.

Politics-wise, I'm a lefty, and inclusion is very important to me. I'm currently trying to work out what that means for me, both in my online life and my offline life. (I deal with a lot of anxiety, which makes working that out much trickier!)

Related to politics, this Mastodon/hometown instance is my first foray in to the world of the decentralised web, which I think is going to be very important over the coming years.

Another very important part of my life is my ginormo-dog, Colt! We rescued him earlier this year. He's a ~4yo Great Dane and very friendly!

(The rescue named him Colt because he snorts like a horse when he is annoyed about something. They were not wrong to do so!)
