Application Design
and Development


I have lived in and around the Calgary, Alberta area for the entirety of my 31 years. I have always had a keen interest in technology, and found myself engaged in computers and video games at an early age. Since then, we have been inseperable.

I grew up outside of Calgary in the town of Langdon, and then city of Airdrie. I went to college in Calgary from 2003 - 2006, and graduated with a Bachelor of Computer Science. Very quickly out of school, I joined a small start-up, Urban Lighthouse.

I have been working on the web since the late 1990's. I've run websites of my own, and have worked on countless sites and applications, from design to implementation to prodution and beyond. I've seen the web change a lot over the years, and I am cautiously optimistic about the future potential of the internet, and the ways in which it will transform our ways of life.
