I am a technologist who has progressively moved more into the business, product, and marketing side of things.
I've never been paid to code, but tinker with new technologies as part of relying on my technical background to help build bridges and explain technology through the lens of business and marketing.
As part of my move back to Vancouver in 2004, I became part of the growth of Vancouver's web & entrepreneur community. I was part of the early growth of Web 2.0, including open source, blogging, and the emergence of social media.
I strive to align my personal interests – working with smart people on great projects that involve people-centric technology – with what I do for work. My work-life balance tends to come from making sure that I am involved in mission-driven companies that I can get behind and champion.
Aside from my interest in technology, I live in Vancouver & I like food. You can find more personal interests on my personal blog »
