About Me


Discover what I had no idea was out there


I'm a Canadian coder living in the UK, and shortly moving to California. I want to make the most of Europe before I leave. I'm happiest when building awesome things or making beautiful music.


Make awesome things happen. If you're not doing awesome things, what's stopping you? Want to go do some awesome things?


Making music, video games, meeting new people, experiencing the wonders of the world.

  • guitar

Music, Movies, and Books

Any live music. Walk Off The Earth, Radio head, and The Beatles are my favourite. My tastes are wide, and I'll listen to most anything.

My biggest movie-related regret was that I went through life for almost two years without seeing Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Packed up and headed for Sweden, then Germany, then England, then California. Rode a camel, cut my foot on coral, paraglided, cycled Germany's Romantic Road, learned German, recorded my first duet, and that's still nowhere near enough.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm an amateur singer/guitar player and a geek at heart. I can fix a computer or two when the need arises. I can't stop thinking about making games that people love.
