I am a web and mobile application developer from Vancouver, BC, Canada.

I have been developing web applications professionally since 2002. Most often I work with php5 (using Symfony + Propel + sfAltumoPlugin*), MySQL, html5, jQuery, AngularJS and css3 but I have looked and experimented with nodejs, Backbone, Google Closure, MongoDB, Redis, CouchDB and others.

I am also quite comfortable deploying and managing servers in both physical and virtual environments. I have been managing several production servers on AWS utilizing EC2, RDS, R53, S3 and their respective APIs to automate tasks.

*sfAltumoPlugin is an open source multi-purpose php 5.3+ library that I co-founded and regularly contribute to. It contains a set of high-quality, well-commented, tested "plumbing" code that I use to avoid writing the same general-purpose code over and over.

In addition to web applications, I recently got involved with mobile application development for iOS. My current focus in learning is Objective-C and relevant frameworks.

comment Does installing electric heated floors require dedicated electrical?
That makes perfect sense. Thank you, I just didn't have enough information to know whether this was even feasible.

comment Is it possible to retrofit an external kitchen fan in an existing house?
@gregmac: I've considered that as well. I just wanted to explore this possibility as it could virtually deliver pretty decent suction for under 1sone. I currently have a NuTone 810CFM 65dB (~5 sones) and it only has 3 speeds all of which are pretty loud (I would say over 50 dB). I've looked at other options, but I haven't found something at around the same CFM level but with less noise.. Any specific recommendations?
