Where are you from?
I grew up in Claresholm and moved to Calgary after high school. I worked at a sawmill for about a year before I went on a church mission in France for two years. The first year, I lived on the west coast and I spent the second year living in and around Paris. I learned to speak French and got to experience a whole other culture. One day, I’ll go back. When I came back to Alberta, I went to Lethbridge College, where I met my wife, and studied Computer Information Technology.
How long have you been at the U of L and what do you do here?
This September, I will have been at the U of L for 13 years. As a web developer, I’m on the team that creates the U of L website and makes sure it works smoothly. When I first joined the U of L, I worked in the Curriculum Redevelopment Centre, which is now the Teaching Centre. We merged with Information Technology a few years after I started.
What’s the best part of your job?
I like working at an institution like this mostly because there are so many other people here that I enjoy interacting with. And it’s nice to work at a place where there are opportunities to expand and grow.
What’s something that most people don’t know about you?
I’m an avid disc golfer. I play in disc golf tournaments and have been on the local disc golf club’s board of directors.
If you were stranded on a tropical island, what would you want to have with you?
My wife and my cell phone.
