As of 2019 I am the coordinator of the internal Statistical Consultation Unit of University of the Free State, South Africa. I also lecture Bayesian Statistics and coordinate the stats and actuarial honours classes in their research endeavours. All round helpful person. I serve humanity as best I can because I am grateful, particularly for the salvation granted me by Jesus Christ. Technology likes me for some reason nobody understands. Married to Catherine Sheares (now vdM). I used to play a lot of computer games and program for fun, now I only play the game Warframe properly and only program for work (although my work is fun).
