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?

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

About You (Yes, you!)

You made the wise choice of visiting my website today.

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 .

👀 Remember, when you look at the Internet, the Internet looks back at you! 👀
