Here are just a few of my broad range of interests. I don't quite
know what to say about all of them but over time I'll try to get a few details

Teaching and Learning Two
of the primary joys in my life - more soon here about my academic career,
teaching and learning experiences, some of the writing I've been doing, my teaching at West Point Grey Academy, St. Patrick's Regional
Secondary and at UBC, etc.
Outdoor Recreation I
love hiking, mountain biking, fishing, canoeing, etc. More info soon!
and Application Design I have been doing computer
hardware consulting for many years now and also really enjoy
building practical computer-based software tools. More soon in this section
about my background in computer consulting and some of the interesting
projects I've done in this area.
Vacuum Tube Audio I really enjoy designing and building
vintage-style high-performance vacuum tube audio equipment. I'll put some
links and photos here of some of my completed projects.
