About Me

  • I am a Canadian, now living in Canada.
  • I previously lived in Tokyo for a number of years and worked in the media and communications department (Media Centre) of United Nations University.
  • I almost exclusively use Linux, open source, and online software.
  • I’ve worked in a variety of industries and environments in both Canada and Japan.
  • I am interested in making the world a better place, and attempt to do so primarily with technology.
  • I like systems that contribute to communities, communication, collaboration, knowledge management and streamlining processes (Intranets, Web Applications, CRM, Websites, and Databases).
  • Much of my work has been to provide information and solutions that encourage community and help things to happen, and generally revolves around communication, collaboration, education, and online media.
  • My curiosity leads me to explore a great variety of things, both concrete and abstract. Some of my tangible interests involve disaster and emergency management and response, youth leadership development, photography, sustainable development, and the environment.
  • I also do a great deal of volunteer work.
