Welcome to what keeps me busy. I like variety, and without variety I get bored. In everything I'm involved in, I put forward my best possible work, drawing from knowledge of my varying experiences. The interesting thing however, is when any or all of the things I'm involved in at any given time, intersect.
Currently I'm working with the Government of Canada on the Open Government Portal project, which aims to provide government data and information in a format everyone can understand. Previously, I worked in software development at Shopify. I dedicate much of my spare time to photography and climate conservation. I volunteer for Protect Our Winters and previously volunteered as a member of the Chief Information Officer of Canada's Digital Youth Advisory Committee.
With the Open Government Portal, I use previous work experiences and volunteer work to drive and assist me. My software development experience is used continuously, with my previous volunteer work in the government allowing my network to widen easily for this work. My passion for wildlife and conservation creates a goal for the project, which is at some point, organizations and individuals should be able to capitalize off this data to improve Canada as a whole, such as knowing where green energy infrastructure is needed most, or where grizzly bear populations are in need of help. It will take the world to repair the world.
I invite you to look around the site, and contact me if you'd like!
