Who is Darren Nathanael

Hi, my name is Darren Nathanael. I am a sysadmin and backend developer who is also a bit of a nerd. I have a tendency to set unrealistic expectations for myself, which can lead to frustration and disappointment when I am unable to meet these goals. In order to overcome this, I focus on setting realistic and attainable goals that I can easily achieve. This gives me the momentum I need to keep moving forward.

I am serious about my work and expect honesty in return. I have helped create successful businesses in the past and value honesty and professionalism. If personal issues come up, I understand that they take priority over work, but I ask that you be upfront with me about any issues that may arise.

You can contact me via email at me@darrennathanael.com. I read my email daily and my PGP key is 0x6d03afba32c7e1e2 | 5d5b2962d717769365301bbe6d03afba32c7e1e2. You can find my PGP key on various key servers, including OpenPGP, Ubuntu KeySRV, Surfnet.pl KeySRV, MIT EDU, and circl.lu.

I am currently working on a few open source projects, including dPaste, Discord MusicBot, and lavalink-list. You can find more information about these projects on my GitHub profile.

As a fun note, here are a few quotes that I find amusing:

  • “Always trust what others say or write without ever questioning them. Especially their code.” - Albert Einstein

  • “If she this easy, then she prolly got a diseasy” - Dr Martin Luther King

  • “If a woman is giving you what you want, it is deception.” - Sun Tzu, Art of War

Thank you for reading.


Ahh, put that in there. Pretty sure no one will find this. Well, no one who’s not supposed to find it. There we go. Ohh.
