Professionally: Former cognitive scientist turned IT consultant. I specialize in telecommunications systems for SMBs and call centres, systems administration, web application & site development and SEO/social media leveraging at my company, My Solutions IT. I also act as Head Tech at TechAlberta.ca supporting home and small office PC users.

Personally: Metaphysician and natural philosopher. Scrabble fiend. Chocolate snob (mmm, 73% dark single origin Cuban!) I blog about whatever happens to outrage me at the moment or catches my fancy on a whim - everything from consumer rights to the best restaurants in Mexico to Canadian politics. G+
