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.
