More about Nigel

Previously, I have been lead developer of Mahara (2006-2009) while employed at Catalyst IT (whom I had worked for on and off since I was 17). I also wrote GeSHi while at university, and managed the project until 2007, when I handed over the reins to Benny Baumann.

When not working on Get Your Game On, I run, play indoor football and futsal, and lead the Standby Task Force Tech Team.
