Co-founder and Lead Developer at Empower Operations. Rabbid guice, Java-8, and JavaFX-FXML user. Also working on Linq-A-Like in the little time I have, trying to push towards immutable collections and a proper functional collections framework for java. Regular at Vancouver's Scala meetup and looking to start a project in Scala. Outside of code, my hobbies are that of a 60 yo man, I like the symphony, Cirque-du-soliel, and snowboarding, when the money's good. I stay in my box and try to crank out ~~code~~ business value when its not. Also markdown fan though evidently not very skilled with it.
