I’m an I.T. professional with a diverse amount of creative and practical experience.
I pride myself on being good at 3 things: Solving problems, being creative and when given the opportunity, leading by example. I work hard and I’m proud of that. This blog is an extension of what I do and what I’m thinking about. Like any personal blog, it is updated irregularly and has the primary purpose of occasionally archiving things that I would like to talk about.
More then anything, I want to make a difference.
4 things about me:
- My work has taken me half way around the world and I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of it. I call Toronto home.
- The thread that connects my career is Information Technology. I refer to myself as “a creative I.T. pro with years of experience.” I have been a technical consultant and strategist, a teacher who helped pioneer the first accredited online high school in North America, the Chief Technology Officer for an online advertising company, and an entrepreneur trying to make my mark on the world. Right now, I run Technology for a large scale eCommerce startup.
- If someone asks me what I would like to drink, I usually answer “rye and ginger please.”
- I have a really great family. Not only does my wife, Brandy put up with all of the crazy stuff I do, but she supports and sometimes even encourages it. My kids give me a lot more than I give them. I try to even the score every day.
