About

I’m a software developer based in Toronto. Most recently, I have joined Wave. Before that, I was a partner and developer at Scimatic Software before heading out on my own.

I have a focus on scientific software, anything from acquisition through to data analysis. You can see some of the recent projects I’ve worked on.

Here’s the “Thoughtful Humanist” picture of me:

Right now, I’m using

  • Python
  • Django
  • Javascript with React and Flux
  • Git and Github

Before that I was using

  • .NET
  • C#
  • Visual Studio

In the past, it’s been everything from Fortran to Perl to C and C++.

I did my Ph.D research with the High Energy Physics Group at the University of Chicago under Ed Blucher.

My thesis experiment, KTeV, ran at the FNAL (FermiLab) fixed target run in the late ’90s, where we were investigating Charge-Parity symmetry violations in the kaon sector (you can read about that in “Brief History of Time” — that’s the book that got me hooked on wanting to study CP-violations).

My thesis is available from Fermilab. Here are the papers I worked on directly, plus all the other papers from our collaboration.

I play left-back for Rashers FC, in the lowest division of Sunday night mens’ league 6-aside at Soccerworld. I also enjoy skiing.

I’m married and we have a fantastic kid and we bought an old house out on the Danforth.
