- Web Application Developer
- Python/Django Guru
I create web-based software for not-for-profits in the healthcare sector.
I'm the owner and lead developer of a specialized software development company named Litiks. Through Litiks, I create web-based applications, usually for charities and not-for-profits in the healthcare sector.
Before starting my own business, I was the lead-developer at Potensiacorp; a small-and-mighty software development company based out of Chatham, On.
I have experience with several open-source programming languages. My primary language of choice is Python, usually using the Django Framework, though I'm also familiar with PHP. I'm proficient with many database systems, including MySQL, PostgreSQL, Cassandra, MongoDB, and CouchDB.

For whatever reason, I'm the type that loves to take on big projects. I love to meet with a group of friends and dream up 3-dimentional mazes, or camping challenges that will test our survival skills, or video ideas that will earn the creative envy of our peers. And I love making those dreams a reality. Of course, not every idea makes it, but dreaming big has led to some great accomplishments in my life.
I'm passionate about my faith in Jesus. Not in the scary 'repent or burn' kind of way, but in the 'love your enemies' kind of way. I believe in radical generosity, global humanitarian efforts, and absolute forgiveness.
I'm married to the most incredible woman - Emily Mader. She's a gifted vocalist, and she's currently working as the worship director at our church; Starting Point. She is creative, honest, and insightful, and I love her to bits.
