What I am about

I work with a wide variety of platforms and get involved with a huge variety of projects. I like to use the latest and greatest in technology to create innovative solutions for every day problems or to develop any and all forms of entertainment. I always have a million ideas rolling around in my head and there might not be enough paper and time in the world to get them all written down. If there were more hours in the day, I would be working on even more projects. This is what I enjoy doing and look to continue to do in my career.

In my professional career, I've focused on software/web development in defense applications and network security. In addition to development, I have been involved in multiple carrier grade quality assurance telecommunication projects for enterprise and consumer based products.

I am a Certified Associate in Project Management from the Project Management Institute and a graduate of Carleton University and Algonquin College's Bachelor of Information Technology: Interactive Multimedia and Design program.

What am I working on now?

Currently I am developing a multiplayer game with the Unity game engine and getting used to the development environment and tools that the engine provides.

Telecan Space

What was the latest thing I finished?

Recently I completed a website for a space consulting firm located in Gatineau called Telecan Space. This website involved a lot of modern web technologies and had both front-end and back-end web programming. There is extensive use of HTML5, CSS3, JQuery, and back end PHP work. I basically took an HTML template which had styling for desktop and mobile device browsers and built additional functionailty that was requested by the customer to create a new and rich experience for their website.
