I have had an adventurous career, working in software technology for over 20 years. I have extensive experience in all aspects of software and have held a multitude of roles from developer, architect and most recently as Chief Technology Officer for a Big Data Analytics company based in Mississauga, Ontario. There I managed the development and design of Big Data processing technology and developed a patent-pending software suite to do large scale data extraction and processing using a custom-designed Regular Expression engine. Version 2 was adapted to utilize more advanced techniques, including Context-Free Grammars over regular expressions.

For the last 5 years, I have lead a more divergent path with technology start-ups. I have founded an Educational Technology start-up in Tokyo and Toronto, DNA sequence testing in Seoul, Korea and GPS theft tracking in Japan.

I am a creative, and founded a video production agency called tencolors, which is currently based in Tokyo, Japan. We specialize in emotive storytelling and documentary filmmaking.

Through this mix of creative and technological experience, I am looking forward to working with ARI on future projects, such as the Ethnobotanical Garden project for the Virtual Museum of Canada.

Current Projects

  • I am working toward an overhaul and re-implementation of the Ethnobotany Garden Project to better convey the ethnobotany and its importance, history and relevance in the North. The project will be a mixed media presentation of audio, photography, 360 degree tours, and photogrammetry 3D scans to better educate the world about the importance of ethnobotany in the Western Arctic.
