I'm a mobile software developer based out of Toronto Ontario, Canada. Building native mobile applications for recognized brands since 2009. Well versed in design patterns, test driven development (TDD), and platform porting (iOS apps to Android and vice versa).

In a previous life, I was a Drupal developer and I still do some custom Drupal module and theme development. Recently I've picked Symfony as my PHP development framework of choice, and will use it as a starting point for projects not fit for Drupal.

This site is primarily used to showcase the work I've done in the past and illustrating what I've learned in my years of experience. See the contact page for contact information.

Mentoring Co-op Students

I've had the pleasure of mentoring some co-op students over the last 4 months. I remembered the days when I was just as eager as they are to learn as much as possible in a very short amount of time. I remember crashing a burning a lot on my attempts at learning something new, but that made the victories that much sweeter when they came. One thing I do regret not doing is being in the co-op program. There's so much you learn from industry experience that you just don't learn in your day to day courses and homework.

NOT willing to relocate

I've recently been getting a lot of inquiries about my job status from several big name companies. I never thought I'd be in a position to be recruited from some of the biggest names in the tech industry. Though it's flattering, I'm in no way, shape, or form, willing to consider the idea of moving out of Toronto.

Upgrade to Drupal 7 Complete!

Finally done my upgrade to drupal 7.. I've been using drupal 7 at work and was wondering why I never got around to updating it.. now that I have, I love it.. I'm glad I got back into the drupal thing.. still a great CMS, and has been getting better since I last touched it.

more work related updates to follow.

Time to Upgrade to Drupal 7

I've been looking forward to this for at least a year. I'd been beta testing Drupal 7 for a while but never really thought it was stable enough to use on my blog.. Now that I've built a few sites in D7, I am confident in D7 dev and administration abilities to make the switch.. I'll be spending the weekend going through the updating steps a few times before making the final plunge on the production server.

Anyone have any tips how to deal with the D6-D7 migration? Leave a comment below.

I'll be blogging again very soon.. stay tuned.
