I like to think outside the box. I bring solutions to problems from all areas of life. I love cooking; there’s some overlap between cooking and programming. The meal (and project) is won or lost in the preparation.
My favourite quote is from the coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs who said “Do good things and good things will happen”. I try to do good things always.
I’m a minimalist at heart, and I love simplicity. There’s nothing more satisfying than making a commit that removes more lines of code than it adds. I do my best to make things better.
I prioritize learning, and I love speaking at conferences. I attend as many programming conferences as I can fit into my schedule.
I look for ways to solve inefficiencies. I want to eliminate inefficiencies within applications, code, teams, communication, as well as processes.
I look at the big picture of where the company’s headed and make long-term plans for scalability and growth. I balance that long-term plan with short-term goals.
I put my heart into everything I do.
I live in Southern Ontario, just outside of Toronto with my partner Lindsie, my two kids, and our dog, cat, turtle, and fish tank.
