Introduction worked as a Programmer/Analyst in Montreal and down south in Georgia. Returned to Canada and moved to Brockville in Fall of 2006. Hopes he helped people work more effectively by letting their computers do some of the tedious tasks. After returning to Canada, he worked on an assembly line for a local manufacturer doing whatever the machines wouldn't do.
Interests Walking, reading, peace and quiet.
