Nicholas Whyte is originally from Belfast, but has lived in Belgium since 1999. He was the DH for Promotions at Loncon 3 in 2014, and then Hugo Administrator in 2017 and 2019, deputy Hugo administrator in 2020 and 2022 and WSFS DH at DisCon III in 2021, as well as being one of the Arthur C. Clarke Award judges in 2015. He is a particular fan of Doctor Who, and is briefly visible in Peter Davison’s “The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot”.
In his day job, he is a political consultant in Brussels, and advised the last three counties to become independent (Montenegro, Kosovo and South Sudan). Having failed as a political candidate in Northern Ireland, he compensates by doing election night commentaries for the BBC in Belfast. He and his wife Anne have three adult children, two of whom live in permanent residential care. He still blogs at Livejournal even though all the cool people have gone elsewhere.
