    • I have done a wide range of photography, everything from panoramas to HDR images to time lapse photography.
  • Computers
    • I use Windows 7 as my main OS of choice but I have experience with OSX and Linux and every other version of Windows since Win95.
    • I have custom built every computer that I own (there are only 2 exceptions, one of my servers and my laptop).
    • I know lots about computer networks as my house is a fairly big LAN for a household LAN with 25 computers.
    • I love good file management, especially in my house where every computer is connected and with over 12TB of files it's necessary.
  • Videography
    • My lack of a decent video camera hasn't stopped me from enjoying and learning about this interest.
    • I know lots about what kinds of tools are used in the industry and what tools are used on indie films.
    • Techniques when shooting
    • Lighting
    • Sound
    • Pretty much every aspect I know a little about.
  • Theater Lighting and Sound
    • I have over 4 years experience doing Lighting and Sound for small town theater.
    • I know mostly about the lighting, the theater where I do shows has a fairly advanced console for their setup.
    • On the sound end I know lots too, the theater also as a fairly advanced and underused soundboard that I have setup to work properly in the location.
  • Other random stuff about me
    • My favourite Japanese word is sora (sky), don't ask me why.
    • I am a semi perfectionist, if I have the time then I want everything I do to be perfect but I know when I have to just drop something.
    • I love Anime, Movies Games, TV shows, etc.
    • I have never been outside of North America (I think I was in South America once but I'm not sure)
    • I don't like to leave things unfinished.
  • Work and School
    • I went to RAC Digital Arts College for Video Game Development.
    • I work as a projectionist at our small local theater on Sundays.
    • I have worked in a Bell store as a sales rep, it was cool getting to try all the new phones.
