I am the senior developer and system administrator of Encore Lab. My responsibilities include the planning, co-design, and creation of the technology needed to mount successful research runs with our partner schools. In addition, I am responsible for the creation and maintenance of the server infrastructure used for research and things like this blog.
As an alumni of the iSchool @ UofT and the Critical Making lab I love to tinker with Arduinos and the Raspberry Pi. I enjoy creating physical objects that represent information and communicate over the Internet and was very pleased to be part of the Rock, Paper, Awesome! project.
Security and privacy are topics of interest to me and besides following news and feeds around these topics with rigour I work on the SurveillanceRights project. Moreover, I am a assurer with CaCert and if you want I can assure you and give you 35 points (you have to join CaCert first).
In my spare time I enjoy practising Karate, listening to podcasts, and geeking out over StarCraft 2.
