I am an extraordinarily hoopy frood who is at all times aware of the location of his towel.
Hi! My name is Benjamin. I'm an American expat settled more or less permanently in Düsseldorf, Germany. My professional work is mostly writing web applications based on PHP. I am also a fluent speaker of Japanese and German, a life-long ballroom dancer, a passably good Go player, a Master League Protoss and a proud papa. I also play piano and juggle, both with a great deal more enthusiasm than talent.
