Offline you can meet me at many Digital Okanagan events like #StartupCoffeeKL.

Online you can find me on all of the following networks:

You can get in touch with me at any of those places, or even send me an email. Here is my public key.

As much as possible, I try to spend time on my blog. I have been distracted by technology criticism over the past few years.

I support the Whitecaps, Spurs, and Grampus.

Past

Lived in Vancouver, Kyoto, Kingston and Nagoya. Travelled throughout Asia, from Far East to Far West.

Schooled at UBC, Rits and RMC. You can read some of my academic work. I have a couple of published works including a couple of chapters in a book on military theory.

Worked in education, public relations and tech sectors. Spent 5 years at Apple. The last four involved with startups. Am a product guy, concerned with giving customers the best experience. Done web strategy, PR, brand consulting, workflow consulting, information management and polishing custom application interfaces. I have made many websites and consulted on many more. Prior to my startup career I produced the Lining Things Up podcast.

Future

Always looking for opportunities to work on projects growing the tech industry in BC. After years of bouncing back and forth between Japan and Canada, we have settled down in Kelowna, BC and are loving it.
