Moving from Cowtown to Techcouver?

When I mentioned to Rob Lewis that I was considering a move to join the BC Tech community he did what any good editor would do and challenged me to make a post out of it.

Never one to shy away from a challenge, here I am to present myself to the community and to see if I can excite you as much as you excite me.

Choosing an introduction style is always difficult so I have decided to try a couple techniques based on local companies.

The PlentyOfFish Dating method:

  • Loves: Techy stuff, shiny things, pretty solutions, tattooed servers, programming, solving puzzles, simplicity, cooking
  • Dislikes: Vitamin D, walking, exploring, finding out new things that break my reality, family time, ok, so not really dislikes, all these things are awesome too.
  • Spend my time lost in thought with c++, perl, php, reading, objects, playing, networking.
  • Former entrepreneur and current dev/systems guy Looking for a committed, serious yet super fun and cutting edge relationship with someone who loves what they do and how they do it. Please no dim lighting and politics.
  • Avoiding Oil/Gas/Mining/Destruction, Wanting Community/Entertainment/Social Good/Enviro/Health businesses
  • Planning on trip next week and want to meet founders/funders/hiring in safe environments with witnesses (Coffee)
