I live in Waterloo, Ontario, and work at a large technology company in the area. In my free time, I enjoy learning about computer science and creating interesting web applications.

I have a Masters of Computer Science, part time, at the University of Waterloo. I had originally planned to write a thesis. But I also have a job. The likelihood of the thesis is inversely proportional to present income. In the end, I took an extra course to fullfill the requirements.

Here's some papers I wrote for classes:

Past Interests

Here's a list of stuff that I've worked on:


I used to dream of being a composer of film scores. I enjoy the music of John Williams, and Danny Elfman, and Cliff Eidelman's work on Star Trek VI. Unfortunately I don't have the patience to learn to play an instrument, I got up to Grade 4 piano before I stopped. Here's some music that I composed using Cakewalk music software.


I drew a comic strip for Imprint, the University of Waterloo student newspaper. After I got a job at Research in Motion, I continued it there for a while. All strips are archived here


Budgie-Zilla! Over a decade ago, I made a web page once called Budgie-Zilla. There are pictures of gigantic birds destroying landmarks. Apparently it's a part of budgie pop-culture now. The site is mentioned in a book about trademark law, and it has inspired a youtube video.
