Inspired by rhiaro. Here’s how you may get in touch with me should you feel the need


Email is my preferred method of getting in touch. I have a few identities with email mostly based around the work I do at either Open Data Services Co-operative or as a PhD candidate. Use those appropriately if you’ve got questions about Open Data stuff or my research. Otherwise I have two personal email addresses. One of them I don’t share publically to minimise spam; that means anything that comes in there will be personal and nice to read (or important). If you don’t know that one you can get me at communications [care of] Here’s my PGP Key if you’re into that.

  • Will I see it? Probably
  • Will I reply? Most likely

Instant Messaging

You can also send me an IM. I use both Signal and Telegram. I am aware of the multiple problems with each (problems with Signal | problems with Telegram), but this is the best we’ve got. I’ve got each of them on both my phone and laptop. I will mostly see messages on my laptop when it’s open (office hours + weekends, mostly). If you don’t know me already please contact me via Telegram rather than Signal. I have never used Whatsapp and I will try my utmost to avoid it forever.

  • Will I see it? Almost certainly
  • Will I reply? Probably

Phone call and SMS

I store my phone at home in a box unless I need it for 2-factor auth or for travel. Expect long replies for SMS. All unknown numbers are routed to voicemail automatically, so leave a message.

  • Will I see it? Eventually
  • Will I reply? If I know you, yes. Otherwise definitely not.

Social Media

I used to output to my Mastodon and Twitter accounts until I migrated this site to Jekyll. I do not log in or otherwise check them. I do not have Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, or LinkedIn accounts

  • Will I see it? Probably not
  • Will I reply? No
