I'm Gavin Atkinson, I live in York, UK and work as a Unix Sysadmin at the University of York. Through work, I'm usually to be found at many of the UKUUG conferences, as well as making it to EuroBSDCon and occasionally BSDCan. Most of my FreeBSD activity in done in my free time.
I can usually be found lurking on EFnet as gavin, or be contacted by e-mail <gavin@FreeBSD.org>. If you need to send me encrypted mail, my GPG key is 0x4DA114E5C4A2E57F and is available from public keyservers or the FreeBSD Handbook (old key 0xA093262B is deprecated, and should no longer be used). I can also be found as "gavinatkinson" on LinkedIn, Twitter and last.fm.
