About demize

I’m a senior-level SOC analyst, apparently. I do things with computers at work and in my spare time. I have a Bachelor’s degree with a ridiculously long name from Sheridan College in Canada. Most colleges in Canada give diplomas, but the program I did is specifically accredited, granting an Honors Bachelor instead.

There’s definitely more to me than that, though. This is all more or less true:

  1. I stream Mario Maker on Twitch twice a week. I am a Twitch affiliate, and I do not plan on ever trying for partner.
  2. I’m one of the mods of the Super Mario Making Showciety, a Twitch team for Mario Maker and SMW streamers. We do a yearly charity event, and our Discord can be a cool place to hang out.
  3. I watch TV. Some of it is anime. You may have noticed from my avatars on social media.
  4. I play video games sometimes. What kinds of video games? Video games.
  5. I don’t do it nearly enough, but I enjoy reading. It can be hard for me to get into books sometimes, but I’ve found John Scalzi, Neal Stephenson, and Neil Gaiman to get my attention pretty easily. I’m always open to suggestions!
  6. I listen to a lot of music. My music tastes are pretty varied, but a few artists are important to me. I have Frank Turner and Enter Shikari tattoos. Madeon’s Good Faith Forever show was the best thing I’ve ever experienced.
  7. I run the unstable.systems Mastodon instance.
  8. I wrote and maintain Ghirahim_Bot, a link protection bot for Twitch chat. I also comaintain fluid-queue, a self-hosted viewer levels bot for Twitch.

If you need to contact me, Mastodon is probably easiest: (@demize@unstable.systems). Other methods are listed on my contact page.
