Well, this should eventually be a short bio of my life, assuming I ever actually get around to writing it.
And assuming I ever get a life.
How about just some simple stuff? I was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on September 15, 1969. I'm told I lived there for a couple years until my sister was born, and shortly thereafter we moved to Los Angeles for a couple more years while my dad did some research. After that we moved back to London, Ontario, where I lived and went to school. I lived in north London and went to Ryerson Public School until grade three when we moved to south London and I switched to Mountsfield Public School and then South Secondary School. I did my undergraduate degree in Computer Science at the University of Western Ontario, then I moved out to Vancouver, BC in September 1991 to pursue graduate studies in Computer Science at the University of British Columbia.
Well, how do you like that? I got a job in March of 1994 working part time as a sysadmin at Prodigy Technologies Corporation (now Big Server Software) in beautiful downtown Vancouver. I'm working seven to eleven in the morning, and outside of having to pretend to be a morning person, loving it.
Yep, and I'm now unemployed again, as of February 1995. Hopefully I'll manage to use the time to finish my Masters. I also moved to a new place, and had my car stolen and recovered all around this same time. Quite the eventful month.
Well, as of June 1995, the thesis is not yet done, but I've made substantial progress on it. I'm also no longer unemployed, but am now working full time as an Applications Analyst (whatever that means) with the Department of Computer Science. It's rather nice to be expecting a sizeable increase in my income, and a continuing stable net address for the next year or more. The hard part will be reorganizing my life so that I make enough time to continue work on the thesis.
Now we're up to August 1997, sizeable jump there. The thesis eventually fell by the wayside, but the job has remained. Life is pretty good: last May I started dating a particularly fine member of the opposite sex, and I'm currently expecting a promotion at work. Of course, my web pages are all way out of date since I'm spending most of my time on other things, but it's not like I ever look at them.
I've upgraded my geek code to version 3.1 and moved it to its own page. Along similar lines, according to the Keirsey Temperment Sorter I'm an ISTJ.
