I'm an IT consultant primarily doing web and collaboration infrastructure stuff. Microsoft SharePoint, Azure, IIS/ASP.NET web applications, databases and the LAMP stack get me out of bed in the morning. I have a strong interest in the technologies that underpin them too; virtualisation, storage, and networks all float my boat. I live in Metro Vancouver, Canada, having emigrated from Scotland where I cut my IT teeth working in the energy industry.
I enjoy using technology to solve problems. But you can't solve human problems with technical solutions, and sometimes the human problems are the most interesting ones to fix. I like helping with that, too.
I'm a lazy CLI guy and get a kick out of automating things, so I'm a huge Powershell advocate. My morning coffee is made by a shell script (really).
Other things I find interesting include cryptography, Internet architecture and governance, online and offline privacy/anonymity, and typography. I have a pilot's license, and in my spare time (and when the weather is good enough) I like to go flying in the Lower Mainland's beautiful surroundings.
Other than aviation, my great love of the moment is home automation, through which I manage to consistently annoy my family members with light switches that don't behave properly.
If you're into the whole crypto thing, I have a Keybase profile here. I'm happy to receive PGP-secured mail, or you can use their new IM functionality. If you have my mobile number, I'm also on 7877904705.
