Interests

Apart from being a web developer, I enjoy most of my time being outdoors. In the winter, I am an avid walker and novice ice climber. During the warmer months here in Edmonton, I enjoy mountain biking, walking and exploring Edmonton and everything it has to offer.

When forced indoors, I follow a number of sci-fi and fantasy genre movies and television shows, I am an aspiring chef, and I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements in the front-end web development world.
