"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new."
I'm a husband, father, senior full stack developer / project manager, entrepreneur, ringette coach, author.
I'm the Senior Full Stack Developer and Project Manager at OrangeSprocket in Fredericton, NB, Canada where I build kick-ass websites and web applications. I'm also a Founder and Front-End Developer and UI/UX Specialist at start-up The Lotto Factory where we build fundraising platforms for charities and non-profits. You can see my full work history on LinkedIn if you wish.
Outside of work, I'm a very active person who enjoys cycling and running, fishing, and traveling and exploring with my wife and daughter in the warm months. In the winter, it's snowshoeing and coaching ringette that keep me busy.
I'm also a writer and have published two novels. I'm also knee-deep in writing two more.
I don't idle well.
"Don't fear failure. Fear being in the exact same place next year as you are today."
During my career I've had the pleasure working on projects both big and small; from multi-billion dollar multinationals to local 'mom and pop' shops. No matter the size of the project, I take pride in delivering a quality product in a timely fashion using the best technologies for the job.
In web development, staying ahead of the curve is a constant battle; one that I wholeheartedly embrace. I try to apply that mindset to my life and my family. I strive to always be learning new techniques, seeing new places, trying new foods.
I couldn't imagine a life spent working the same 'job' for my entire adult life. Whether it's at work or at home, I don't want to ever be the same person that I was a year ago.
Stagnation and routine kill the heart, the mind, and the soul.
"Don't tell people your plans. Show them your results."
"Change doesn't come from comfort."
I've always been a creative person; whether writing, drawing, or painting. A few years ago I challenged myself to write "the novel that I've always wanted to write." It was a fantastic journey, a humbling experience, and one that I'll never forget. Writing has become a passion of mine and I've since published a couple of novels.
