About me

I was born and raised on the praries, and lived in Saskatoon, hunting Mammoth and Wampa, for 25 winters. I am a recent graduate of both the Computer Science and Philosophy programs at the University of Saskatchewan.

Soon after graduation I moved to Montreal and founded my own small web-development company, Freedom Gopher Web Development. While I come from primarily a development background, I am passionate about design, and enjoy being involved in both sides of the development process.
