I was born in Sri Lanka, now living in Paris, France.
I’m the lead developer and founder of HYVOR, a SaaS company with two products: Hyvor Talk (a commenting system) and Hyvor Blogs (a blogging platform, which powers this blog).
Before that, I’ve been a Table Tennis player, a flute player in the school orchestra, and an occasional keyboard player. I learned Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry in school to a certain level.
