It's good to meet you! I’m Kiran (Though I go by CK or Rin, usually) Oliver.
I used to volunteer to build amazing structures at museums, design magazines, and talk about making the gaming community a better place. Now, I'm the Podcast Editor at The New Stack, focusing on all aspects of podcast scheduling, production, content, and coordination across TNS verticals The New Stack Makers, The New Stack Analysts, and The New Stack at Scale.
My 5 year goal list: Write a successful webcomic, publish another book, engineer something to help others with autism, finish a triathalon.
Projects I've worked on have involved partners like MIT, the Gates Foundation, AlterConf, Learning Games Network, and Model View Media.
Get in touch with me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you're in Auckland, the first round's on me.
