Hi, I'm James.

I'm a full-stack software developer with a decade of cloud development experience. As a former teacher, I'm passionate about using technology to empower learners to seek, find and use information to improve learning. I am an advocate for free and open technology, and I believe that community-building is the true power of the internet.

When I'm not working, I spend my free time tinkering with hobby electronics in the smart home area of interest, usually involving 3D printing and lots of blinking lights. I also enjoy spending time outdoors, taking my dog for a walk among the fields of rural Quebec, paddling my canoe in one of Canada's many beautiful lakes and rivers, or working on some home improvement project, indoors or out.
