My strategy for work life balance is to just blur the edges. Let me share my obsessions with bookbinding, writing and software engineering.
Oh yeah, I also had an art gallery a while back.
You’ll find a few images below, but probably the best way to explore my bookbinding work is via my Instragram feed, as really that is the only part of my life I seem to document in pictures.
But you will find some images below too, also I’ve created a couple of Instructables for one of those composition notebooks and a quick miniature book. And for awhile I was hosting Toronto’s participation in the International Edible Book Festival.
My first few jobs were in real time process control. I worked with traffic control systems, automated laundry services and command and control of power generating stations.
I then worked in user interface design. We created a prototyping environment eventually marketed as Intermaphics that strongly influenced the design of air traffic control systems for about 15 years.
I spent a while in technical sales supporting object oriented databases.
In 2001 I re-entered the world of software product development. I architected an Oracle high availability solution as well as a heterogeneous log-based data replication tool. Most recently I’ve become focused on data science and am an architect with IBM’s Data Science Experience.
I amuse myself creating a few android apps as well.
Here’s a more conventional resume.
