My story so far...
I live in Windsor, Ontario, Canada where I lived (other than University) since I was born on March 01, 1981.
I spend most of my time reading various books, programming, and doing work. My greatest fields of interest are P2P, digital image processing, number theory, compression, and changing diapers.
Other than work and geek things, I also spend a lot of time with my wife Shannon, and twin boys: Link & Ronnie.
As of July 6th, 2011 I do full time work for Mozilla working on the Firefox browser.
