Bio

I own and operate a sole proprietorship technology business in Calgary, Alberta (Canada). I help home users and small business with Web Design, PC and android consulting, and also do a little custom home theatre work. Aside from work, I love the outdoors and the close proximity to the Rockies. Any business thrown my way is appreciated, I’ve got a kid to put through college soon šŸ˜‰

Interests

Web Design, PC & android apps & optimization, hiking, skiing, (ice) hockey, rock music, movies etc.

WordPress Origin Story

I wanted to start a small business and knew I needed a web presence. After investigating wordpress.com and site builders such as Wix and Weebly, I decided I wanted the complete control of a self hosted environment. I’m so pleased I chose WordPress.org, the possibilities and extensibility is amazing!
