I am a Senior Software Developer at CubeWerx Inc., a small software company in Gatineau, Québec (across the river from Ottawa). We're into databases and web services for geographic information systems (digital map making). I am also a partner in the company. Here is my resumé for anyone who may be interested. CubeWerx is a great place to work.
I'm slightly over-educated. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo in 1998. My research area was Distributed Systems. I am also interested in operating systems, embedded systems, real-time systems, geographic information systems... pretty much anything with the word "systems" in it.
I also had a heavy hand in developing the following Open Geospatial Consortium® (OGC) specifications: Binary Extensible Markup Language (BXML), Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD), and the initial design of the Web Map Service (WMS) specification that put OGC "on the map".
I am also a diehard 8-bit Commodore Computer (circa 1985) enthusiast. Check my Commodore Page.
Depending entirely on context, I'm either a very quiet and withdrawn person or a cynical, opinionated, outspoken egomaniac. But I have some good qualities, too... somewhere.
