Pleased to meet you

I was born and raised in Calgary, Canada and still live in the area with an incredible woman who keeps me sane and inspired by life.

Writing code and building applications since the late nineties and loving it, I can’t imagine stopping anytime soon. I love building things whether it’s by hand or in code.

I started programming when I realized there was no future in oil and gas. The checking and pumping of, that is. I’ve worked exclusively on web applications on the Microsoft stack for the past ten years and have worked on a very diverse set of apps. Corporate expense management, whistle-blowing and background investigations, mystery shopping, and oil & gas vendor management have all crossed my desk in that time.

I own a company called Modapeak but when I’m not on the clock, I’m building any number of other small projects that might or might not turn into something useful.

In 2009 I took up BMX racing and I’ve been all over to race and train. Before racing the 2011 World Championships in Denmark, I spent a week touring Rome by bike. Whether it’s Copenhagen, Rome, San Francisco or your own hometown, touring a city by bike is a completely different experience.
