His primary focus has been writing database-driven applications for the web built on ASP.Net and ASP. In addition, he holds a degree in Computer Science from the University of Calgary.

A niche which he has carved out is the integration of diverse software packages, seamlessly tying together systems that do not initially communicate with each other.
