About Me

I am a late baby boomer.  In my early teens, I moved with my parents to Toronto, Canada. My studies took me to Waterloo, Ontario, and Edmonton, Alberta, resulting in a  Bachelor degree in Computer Science and a Master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence.

My professional career was launched in Vancouver, British Columbia, where I now live with my wife and daughter. After 25 years in professional software development, I moved on to become a freelancer, developing software  and writing about technology. In addition to Shadow Of Your Wings, I have another blog, Linux Commando, which is about the Linux operating system. I am also a regular contributor to other technology blogs such as Linux Hint.

Besides obvious technology interests, I like reading (my blog will feature book reviews) and ballroom dancing.  I am one (natural) language away from being a polyglot. English and Chinese are the 2 languages I speak fluently.  I am learning Spanish, my third language.
