In addition to composing music, I enjoy reading, coding, and gardening. I'm a voracious learner, always exploring new ideas and diversions.
In my professional life, I work for a software company in Ontario, Canada as an application developer / software engineer. I am the founder and administrator of a popular online e-commerce platform called Scubbly, I contribute to a few open-source projects, I'm co-organizer of a local technology special interest group, and I'm also a volunteer moderator at WebmasterWorld.
Sorry ladies — I am blissfully married to an amazing woman, we have two feisty daughters, and one cat.
