Location: Ottawa, Ontario

I am a government IT architect by trade, however I have a love of woodworking that has stretched back for many years. Unfortunately, I do not often get to spend much time in the workshop/garage nowadays since most of my time is spent with my wife and newborn daughter (July 2007).

Who knows, in a few years I'll be helping my daughter use a handsaw to make a birdhouse or jewellery box!

I am very technical minded, and somewhat of a perfectionist, which sometimes interferes with my woodwork but it really helps when it comes to disseminating knowledge. I had started "my own website": before I found LumberJocks, but I will keep it going since it has become a repository of my woodworking knowledge.

I intend to continue writing articles in "my blog": here, with most being knowledge based. When I finally get back to the workshop, I'm sure I'll post about my progress on my next project!

Welcome, even though you are probably a Senator’s fan. From a Dallas Stars fan.

Actually, I’m not much of a sports fan, of any variety!
But I do support whatever team is local, so for the last decade it’s been the Senators ;)
