Interests

Apart from being a web developer, I enjoy spending time with friends and family. During the warmer months here in Calgary, I enjoy taking long walks by the pathway and getting in touch with nature.

I follow a number of sci-fi and epic genre movies and television shows. I am an aspiring guitar player, and I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements in the front-end web development world.
