I don't recall if I ever introduced myself or not but anyway.
I used to be in the US (Tennessee) but I just got my NZ work permit and I'm starting at Catalyst IT in Wellington a week from today doing some sort of high tech work or other.
When considering this move I found Geekzone and kept up with it to learn more about the local IT scene and people. I actually got a pointer to Catalyst from a soon to be coworker on the Geekzone IRC channel.
Hobbies include: hanging out and drinking coffee or beer, typing softwares and etc.
