Since starting my career in 2003 I have spent the bulk of my energy doing LAMP web development. I am well versed in many c-style languages and capable of learning almost any programming language or construct. Lately most the projects I've been working on have been WordPress projects.

If you have any projects working with Laravel / AngularJS please give me a shout as I am actively seeking projects using these toolsets.

In my spare time I like woodwork, block printing, generative design and playing music.

Well, education can be a wayward path ... I started off in Physics at Waterloo University — after that I migrated over to McGill to study Neuroscience and Linguistics. Same questions different perspectives.

Finally after all of those adventures I completed a double major degree in Mathematics and Computer Science.
