About

Who am I?

I’m the founder of MARE.io and the builder of interesting solutions to interesting problems. I’m the former President of Urban Cultivator, an indoor hydroponics startup based in Surrey, BC. I’ve consulted for businesses on how to generate more leads and sales (and I’ve written about this too), and I’ve been developing things for the web since 2003.

I’ve always been fascinated with building things to solve problems, and when there’s data involved it’s even more exciting. You can see some of the things I’ve made here.

I love connecting with like minded people, so hit me up on my contact page or via twitter.
