That's me on the Great Wall of China, North of Beijing. My chorus travelled to China in September 2012; a long flight, but most definitely worth it. And this year, we were the champion chorus at the International Convention held right here in Toronto. Awesome!

I'm a Software Developer located in Toronto, Ontario, working remotely for a Montreal company called Sitesell. And they're hiring -- if I refer you, I get a bonus!

Over the summer, I worked on a few open source projects on github, namely MetaCPAN where I updated some docs and wrote some code, as well as Vagrant, where I submitted a first draft of a man page. (Vagrant is an awesome tool, by the way -- you should check it out.) I also updated some docs on Dancer2, which I am using to develop an API for a personal project of mine. I also cleaned up the Cookbook section of DBIx::Class, removing the code from the POD, instead pointing to the code examples (which I expanded a little). I also contributed a few fixes to the POD in Perl, which appeared in Perl 5.19.4.

At my most recent job, I was under contract with Bluecat Systems, doing some virtualization work using libguestfs to prepare a thinly-provisioned disk image, then using the resulting system via AQEMU and VirtualBox. I also set up a git server and migrated the code base over from Perforce. I also maintained and supported the build process, running Jenkins.

My LinkedIn profile is here. I'm also on Twitter, and you can also find me on #perl occasionally.

I've been developing software professionally for over twenty five years, starting with a variety of assemblers, then moving up the food chain to C, a sideways trip to Pascal, a brief visit with awk and finally, my current fav, Perl. I've worked in a variety of areas: word processing, data communications, robotics, desktop publishing, pharmacy management, the stock market, document conversion, and foreign exchange.

In the Toronto area and feel liking singing? Come on out to a chorus rehearsal and have a listen! Next show: April 5, 2014, at the Toronto Centre for the Arts.
