- Husband and father of two
- Full-Stack Software Developer
- Python & Django Guru
I create and support software written using the django web framework.
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, and CouchDB.

I like to play on jungle gyms, and I'm partial to the long spiral slides. I like to imagine that the playground is a spaceship. Sometimes my kids join me.
I'm a huge fan of sci-fi and fantasy genres. I believe audiobooks surpass film, print, and game formats as the very best way to consume content.
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. I'm a proud ambassador to her rising cookie empire Roundhouse Cookie Co. She is creative, honest, and insightful, and I love her to bits.
