Amazing twists of fate allow me to teach programming at a small community college in Canada. On top of teaching something that I love, I get the awesome opportunity of teaching half the curriculum. So in a school year, I teach all parts of the LAMP stack, teach all of our Java material, cover all the mobile development courses and fit in as much front-end work as I can.
I'm not looking for full-time work right now, but I'm always interested in projects on the side, both for myself and my students. My work with the Lambton College Applied Research Initiative has helped staff developers for local industry. If you're interested in sourcing some Lambton College students, feel free to contact me directly or reach out to our myCareer Centre.

Software Analyst, Lambton College Sarnia
As the Co-Principal Investigator for the pipeintel applied research project at Lambton College, I worked with a subject matter expert and members of local industry to develop a mobile-first, location-aware, mutably-linked knowledge management system that we could apply to problems commonly found in the local oil and pipeline industry.
- Led a small team of students and recent graduates.
- Prototyped the jQuery Mobile/Google Maps API front-end web application.
- Prototyped the C#/.NET/SQL Server base web service.
- Delegated UI updates to the rest of the team focused on adding features to the front-end.
- Added location-awareness features to: the Google Maps browser application; the VB6 data-entry application; and the SQL Server database.
- Worked with a student researcher to develop a parsing tool that allowed us to take AutoCAD drawings and lay the geometry onto both Google Maps and the aerial photo engine.
The resulting product, pipeintel, is still pre-commercial and looking for further funding.
Helpdesk/Technician, Lambton College Sarnia
While taking some additional training to firm up my sysadmin knowledge, I took a co-op position at Lambton College.

Native Speaking English Teacher, GEPIK and ICEV in South Korea
After graduating, I spent the better part of two years teaching English in South Korea. It was an eye-opening experience, and put me in contact with friends in the publishing and photography business. I bought my first DSLR and learned to shoot alongside all the other crazy foreigners running around the country. During this time, I established a body of work for a self-published guide to Teaching and Living in South Korea. It helped a few people, but it was a pale comparison to what my friends, Simon and Martina, were starting to build with EatYourKimchi.
