Hi, I'm Nathaniel Knight. Please call me "Nat". 🙂
My pronouns are he/him.
I live in B.C., Canada on the unceded territory of the Lkwungen people. I'm dad to one little and one very needy old grey cat.
Professionally, I'm a software developer; that's mostly what this site is about. My education was in in Physics and Atmospheric science, but I've worked in:
- 🤖 AI
- 🎓 ed-tech ,
- ⚡ energy trading ,
- 🧬 bio-informatics and virology ,
- ☁ cloud-systems ,
- 💰 and financial services .
You can see some of my open source work on the Projects page or get an idea of what I work with by looking at my Toolbox.
I'm aware that, being a straight, white, cis-gender male, I enjoy immense privilege in my profession life and in general. I'm dedicated to understanding systems of inequality, how I fit into them, how they can be dismantled, and how I can participate in creating and supporting truly safe and friendly space where my peers can thrive. If you see me not upholding this, please tell me. I will do my best to be graceful in the moment, and I promise to reflect on feedback with humility and thank you if I get the chance.
I'm also a frequent 🚴 bike user, an aspiring ⛵ sailor, and I love both 🎮 video and 🎲 table-top games.
Love is real, trans rights are human rights, and eveyone deserves food, shelter, and nice things whether they work or not. 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️✊
