About

I was born in 1983 and participate actively in ongoing discussions on a variety of issues, including: domain name system policy, ICANN governance, IP address numbering and other Internet ideas. I am an individual Internet user and have been since early 1994. I am a member of the Internet Society.

My writings can be seen on ICANNWatch, Slashdot, CircleID, and my personal website. I look forward to engaging in a refreshing dialogue of ideas and policy with you.
