I live in Sydney, Australia. Felt it was time to write a real bio, so here it is:
My father worked as the State Promotions Manager of NSW at BMG (Australia) for many years and was later involved in web development and IT, this mixed with the compulsive drive to have a nice neat library and my overall love for music was the main reason for my initial interest in MusicBrainz. From there it turned into a hobby and not long after I realised I wanted to treat MusicBrainz as more than just a hobby and really got down to learn as many of the style guidelines as I could. But textbook knowledge never compares to experience, and so I proceeded to do quite a bit of voting to see how the system worked and pick up a few experience tips along the way.
As I begun to use MusicBrainz regularly and expand my knowledge along the way, I set my goal, to be one of the 'big boys' (an AutoMod as it was known back then). Slightly confused at how to to become and AutoEditor, yet determined to continue my work with the MusicBrainz community, I persevered with great delight. On Thursday, June 22 2006, I received that email, describing that I had been put up for election, and 7 days later it was official. Thanks to all those that voted and second proposed me, and special thanks to inhouseuk for giving me such a positive report.
I created the MusicBrainzMySQL, so if you have any problems/questions/ideas, email me.
