I've been Linux user for over 10 years, and been computing since around age 11. I got my start in programming by learning Perl on my Debian machine in high school. Since then I've learned numerous languages including C, C++, and Python. I've also dabbled in Java and assembly.
I have a bachelors degree in Computer Engineering from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC, Canada.
I've worked in Japan as a CAD software developer in C++ on Windows. Not my favorite environment, but an interesting project never the less.
I'm currently employed by a Vancouver-based biotech startup working primarily on systems level projects but doing my fair share of software development.
My favorite programming language is Python and I use it nearly every day. My recent interests lie in virtualization, hpc, and large-scale systems management. I'm an active contributor to the Bcfg2 project.
