Christopher has been a programmer for longer than he can care to remember, after accidentally discovering that by editing the QBasic source files to games he found on old computer, you could make it play different music. Since then, his career has led him to working on a high-performance Python-based search engine, to building reliable abstractions over unreliable 3rd party systems, and even to designing an access contoller for a reclusive art collector's cliffside bunker.

Chris likes it when programmers share knowledge with each other, so he regularly speaks at technical conferences throughout the world. He's also been a serial conference organiser for more than ten years, with past credits including PyCon Australia, and linux.conf.au. These days, when fires or pandemic aren't preventing it, he runs North Bay Python, a boutique single-track conference run in a live music venue.

Originally from Australia, he now resides with his husband, Josh, and cats Astra and Pico, in glorious Petaluma, California.
