About

Hello! I’m Paris Buttfield-Addison! I’m an author, programmer, game designer, speaker, and occasional academic.

That’s me on the right (and my partner, Mars on the left!)

Here’s what I’m up to in 2018:

  • studying a Diploma of Languages in Mandarin
    • I want to learn Chinese!
  • studying a Bachelor of Laws
    • I want to get enough legal training that I can take care of most of the legal needs of myself, and my business.
  • being a participant in the prestigious Tasmanian Leaders Program
  • writing a lot of books and content for O’Reilly Media
