Age: 24

I am a software engineer, author, teacher and entrepreneur.

From the hardcore server-side and database challenges to the the front end issues, I love solving problems and strive to create software that can make a difference. I'm an author published by Manning and O'Reilly and have also appeared in leading publications with my articles on ColdFusion and Flex.

I teach Android development at the Rich Media Institute (downtown Toronto), as well as give presentations at FITC, Riadventure and other conferences on Android, ColdFusion and various other topics. Previously I served as the CTO for MatchFuel and its predecessor AndSpot.

Currently, I am the founder of Dynamatik, a design and development consulting agency.

I am also a Software Engineer working at Kobo on the Android tablet team.
