Firmware/hardware designer by day...
By day I am a firmware/hardware designer, yet in my off work hours I hack around with my Linux boxes, experiment with microcontrollers, programmable logic and other cool chips, run a bunch of web, email and quake servers, play paintball, fly RC planes, ski, swim, cycle, play chess and golf.
Electrical Engineer by education
I graduated in December 1995 from the Electrical Engineering program
at the University of Ottawa
. I try to stay involved in both hardware and software design since I am an Electrical Engineer at heart yet I love hacking code!
Check out my latest hardware endeavors
which include programmable logic designs using AHDL and Verilog.
I have created several programs
released under the GPL
In response to the murder of my brother Andy in December of 1998, I created a web site
where my family and I share information about Andy's life. You can also find information about a memorial scholarship
at Andy's web site
that the University of Ottawa (where Andy was studying Computer Engineering at the time of his death) and our family created to ensure that Andy's memory lasts forever.
