I'm a mobile software developer based out of Toronto Ontario, Canada. Building native mobile applications for recognized brands since 2009. Well versed in design patterns, test driven development (TDD), and platform porting (iOS apps to Android and vice versa).

In a previous life, I was a Drupal developer and I still do some custom Drupal module and theme development. Recently I've picked Symfony as my PHP development framework of choice, and will use it as a starting point for projects not fit for Drupal.

This site is primarily used to showcase the work I've done in the past and illustrating what I've learned in my years of experience. See the contact page for contact information.

Drupal 6 and what I’m doing about it

Well Drupal 6 is now in Beta (4th one to be exact), and I’ve finally decided to take a good look at it. Well, saying ‘finally’ isn’t exactly true. I was testing it when it was still in alpha. I was the one that found it confusing how disabling the PHP filter module left the PHP filter in the system. Anyways, enough about that. I have been looking at the 4th beta of Drupal and I have to admit, it’s not all that close to being ready for primetime. Drupal 5 was a ridiculously stable beta. Drupal 5 only had 2 beta’s and 2 release candidates before it was available for an official release.

Linux fills the void.

So after drooling over macs for some time, I decided that I'd install Linux on my laptop and use that for a while. I figured since Linux is used by so many people, there should be a way to make a linux UI look like a mac UI... and I was right.

Clearly my thinkpad can't do some of what's in this tutorial, but I'll do my best to follow these instructions and get something nice looking.

I think I want a MacBook Pro

Drupal developers use them...

Android developers use them...

Digital photographers use them...

They're lightweight...

They're powerful...

They're not bad to look at...

They don't have very many games (I don't play games anymore)...

They're secure...

I can still use my favourite software (because most of what I use is open source)...

I've already gone down the Linux road...

And quite frankly, I'm getting sick of Windows...

You’re a Gentleman!

Funny story. I was in A&P buying some groceries. I picked up a shopping cart anticipating a large amount of groceries. Turns out I only needed Redbull and milk. I went in line with my stuff, and this older fellow got in line behind me with a bunch of those sandwich platters you see at corporate meetings. I finished up paying and the guy said “I need to go get a buggy so I don’t drop this stuff in the parking lot.” When I realized he meant a shopping cart, I offered him mine. I didn’t need it, I could carry what I bought in my hands. The guy said in a loud voice "Oh thank you sir!
