I am a Linux, Windows and MacOS user/admin who’s moved from system administration into web and application development. I currently reside on Coast Salish lands in Canada, but I am originally from western Europe. My first language is German.

Aurelin is a composition of the names Aurora (meaning “dawn”) and Eveliina/Evelyn (deriving from the diminutive of Avila, which means “desired”). I just like both names and could never decide, so that happened.
