I've lived in four provinces and driven across the country. I enjoy anime and MMORPG/JRPG's.

I write code and idiotic comments about random things.

Mentoring a "start fast" team on best engineering standards and driven technilogical impact.

Machine learning is my new Overlord.

I was in charge of health informatics, scaling and "watchdog" services for MSN and various other services.

I am working with some awesome people right now to disrupt the status quo.

I've run a community application project for Final Fantasy XIV since 2010. Check it out here.

HTML5/CSS3, NET Core, C#, React, ES6, NodeJS, NoSQL, AWS, Azure, REST Design, Architecture and Isomorphic code.

Favourite Quote:

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and will always solve the problems of the human race.

- Calvin Coolidge

Elevator Pitch:

Highly technical software engineer; passionate about secure, performant and reactive REST systems. I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge and challenging myself. I've worked in roles from building services from the ground up; to complete service architectural overhaul. I want to surround myself with smart, motivated and like-minded people in a work environment that can be fun and challenging while creating something wonderful.
I mentor. I sing (poorly). I help bring out the best in my peers and myself through understanding and determination.
