About

Web Development

I am currently the lead developer for the Open Textbook Project. My work focuses on open source software using PHP (LAMP) which supports post-secondary institutions in British Columbia. I freelance as well.

I contribute frequently to projects on Github. I gravitate towards exploiting API’s and I have a penchant for design patterns. I’ve been working in design and development since 2005.
