I'm an entrepreneur, technologist, programmer, writer and publisher and have been online and developing content since 1991.
Currently I'm CEO at SpaceRef, a new media company focused on the space systems sector. I'm also the CEO at Hyperix a small tech company focused on mining the internet for relevant business intelligence for our clients.
My first online service was SportsWorld BBS (1992), a bulletin board system. SportsWorld became aTerra Technologies Corporation in 1993 and then I changed the company name in 2011 to SpaceRef Canada Interactive Inc. as the company was focusing on the space sector.
In 1996 under the aTerra brand I launched Maple Square which was the first Canadian Internet Directory and search engine. Our search results were licensed to first AOL Canada and then Sympatico. I spun off Maple Square in 1999 as a separate company which I then sold in 2004.
The technology I used to create Maple Square became the basis for a new company I started in 2007, Hyperix Search Inc. The software has since been completely rebuilt from the ground up and is used daily to mine the Internet.
I have a diversified skill set that includes software programming and a deep understanding of Internet technology fields as well being media, new media, social media savvy having worked on the publishing content area as well for over 20 years. I may not be a 20 something but I'm still ahead of the curve in the tech and publishing fields.
I've also contributed in building several not-for-profit organizations including the Mars Society (1998 director), Mars Society Canada (2000 co-founder), Mars Institute (2002 co-founder) and the Canadian Space Commerce Association (2007 co-founder) for which I serve as interim President and a director. At the moment I'm only working with the Canadian Space Commerce Association.
I'm available to serve on Board of Directors for technology and space companies.
I'm an Advisory Council member of the Centre for Planetary Science and Exploration at Western University in London, Ontario. http://cpsx.uwo.ca/
