I am a software developer from Burlington, Ontario. I obtained my Computer Programmer diploma from Sheridan College with High Honors and a GPA of 3.92 out of 4. My skillset includes C#, Python, ASP.NET MVC, Umbraco, jQuery, Kendo UI, Bootstrap, Oracle, and SQL Server. In my spare time, I enjoy building robots using Raspberry Pi and Linux.

I love music! I can listen to almost anything, but prefer progressive metal, experimental, classical, ambient, and instrumental folk music.

I have some rather uncommon pets. In total, I have had around 55 tarantulas, scorpions, giant centipedes, and various reptiles. Currently I have around a dozen or so tarantulas and scorpions. They are fascinating creatures that have been evolving for millions of years. I feed them crickets, and do not handle any of them, as the species that I keep are some of the most venomous in the world.

I live to travel the world and explore new places. I have been to 24 countries and all 7 continents. I am not a tourist, but an explorer. I love to visit cities and study their unique architecture, but my passion is to explore the outdoors and visit areas where few people have stepped foot.
