Interests

Apart from being a developer, I enjoy most of my time being outdoors. In the winter, I enjoy playing ice hockey. During the warmer months here in Toronto, I enjoy playing soccer, mountain biking, camping in the woods, and kayaking.

When forced indoors, I follow a number of Netflix shows including HBO's Game of Thrones, I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements in the development world.
