I am, Wes Fraser, an astronomer working at the Herzberg Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics in Victoria, BC, Canada, which is part of the National Research Council. I got my PhD from the University of Victoria in 2008. After a series of flukey events, involving moves to California, and Belfast, Northern Ireland, I find myself back in Victoria.
I love am an avid beer brewer, coffee snob, and mountain biker. I play a lot of ultimate frisbee and disk golf. And you'll often see me in the garage building or hacking away at something, with the 3D printer dancing away in the background.
