Welcome to my personal homepage. Here you will information about my work life. For most the information will be boring and meaningless, but some might find it mildly informative.
I am currently employed as a systems and architecture advisor with Natural Resources Canada.
In the recent past I was responsible for the development of Phoenix, a web based collaboration/mapping/social networking/digital library/portal/[insert any term describing anything similar] application. Phoenix is now officially open source and can be found here.
