Yudhanjaya Wijeratne: Science fiction writer and researcher from Sri Lanka. I work on big data, talk to cats, and spend my days filling notebooks with strange ideas and code.
WRITING PROGRESS, 2018:

Two, because it lets me practice my craft, work with people I like, and explore moonshot concepts over weekend writing binges.
