What I'm up to

About Me

I was born ~40 years ago.

I grew up in Northern Ontario. It was a good place to grow up. It was cold.

I've lived in West Africa, South Korea, and North York. Now I live in a nice house, with my nice family, in St. Catharines.

For a decade I was an English teacher. I didn't like being an English teacher. Then I taught myself software development. This was one of the best choices of my life.

I'm interested in people; who they are and how they think. I'm interested in computers, languages, computer languages and a few other things, too.

I can speak Korean, a little bit. 한국어를 할 수 있습니까?

These days I'm learning DevOps.

If you look hard enough, you can find my business card somewhere around here.

About You

Wait, about me?

You're a smart person. You care.

You also wonder how I know you are in . Maybe a lucky guess?

You squint at your browser and wonder... is Tom watching me?

But don't worry. I don't know who you are and I don't know you're in .

I am so glad you decided to visit my website. You're great.

How do you know about me?
