I'm a Mathematician working as a Staff Tutor at the Open University in Cardiff, Wales.

I use LaTeX for all of my documents- exams, handouts, etc.

I've been a LaTeX enthusiast for a number of years, but have only recently started to learn about the internals. I have a lot to learn- this site has taught me a lot and I'm looking forward to learning more.

I'm also the author of latexindent.pl available on ctan: http://www.ctan.org/pkg/latexindent

comment Drawing a network of lines and discs
It'd be great if you could make your title a bit more descriptive - imagine looking at your question in a few month's time... Would it be a good title? Would it come up in a search result? Have a search for latex trees that grow sideways :)
