About me

Hello! My name is George Peter Banyard, but you'll likely encounter me as Girgias on the internet. I study Pure Mathematics at Imperial College London. I am currently hired part-time by the PHP Foundation to work on the PHP engine (php-src). I also contribute to PHP's documentation and its French translation while maintaining a couple of open-source libraries in my free time. You can sponsor me on GitHub to support my OSS work.

My hobbies are playing puzzle/strategy games, Richii mahjong, anime, and photography.

Feel free to contact me either at girgias@php.net or on Twitter.
