Hi all,

My name is Dean Robinson, I'm a web developer/designer from Australia.  
I've been using WordPress for 4 or so years, and have a bad habit of  
starting new personal projects just so I can try out different ways of  
working with WP.

I'm the developer behind the Fluency Admin plugin which, for those of  
you not aware of it, gives a make-over to the current admin area with  
some new menus, styles and a few extra options ( more info here: http://deanjrobinson.com/projects/fluency-admin/ 
  ). I've also released a handful of other plugins and a few themes  
over the past few years ( http://deanjrobinson.com/projects/ )

I've got numerous other plugins and themes in a half developed state  
waiting for me to find time to finish them. I also released a small  
project last year which provides a basic API for developers to access  
download stats for their plugins and themes which are hosted on  
WordPress.org. WPapi started off as something I was building just for  
myself, but I figured it wouldn't be too hard to polish it up and let  
the rest of the WP community make use of it too. http://wpapi.org/

Away from WordPress, my most notable project would be http://hahlo.com  
which was one of the first twitter webapps built specifically for the  
iPhone, it was quite popular prior to the arrival of the appstore and  
the dozens of native alternative, however I'm still maintaining it and  
have held onto a small group of frequent users. More about hahlo can  
be found here: http://blog.hahlo.com (running WP of course)

I do all of this outside of work hours, primarily to keep myself sane.  
More about me and some of my work can be found over at my blog http://deanjrobinson.com/

I'm looking forward to participating in any design challenges such as  
the icon and admin UI ones that were run last year, and contributing  
back in some way to my favourite blogging platform.
