Technologist, hacker, social engineer, ethicist, newly christened activist who was involved in the Canadian Occupy Movement from the start. Changing the world from inside & out. Non-partisan evaluator of the political sphere- evaluating current events and leaders from a humanist perspective.
I began my work in technology as a child when I had my first computer in 1979. I was a hacker in my early years- causing trouble for telecom companies in a quest to learn everything I could about the system. My interest in activism began back then when I campaigned against the monopoly powers of the major telecom carriers.
I’ve worked most of my life in the corporate world as a management consultant for ‘big 5’ accounting/consulting firms including Ernst & Young, Deloitte & Accenture. My work includes being an architect for the technology behind the City of London’s Congestion Charging System, leading the implementation of global voice & data networks for telecom carriers, and leading one of the first large-scale implementations of the Asterisk Open Source telephony platform.
Growing-up as an ‘airline brat’ I was privileged with the opportunity to have travelled to countries around the world in my childhood. Since then, I’ve visited 73 countries for both business & pleasure- I’ve also lived in the UK, Canada, US, Hungary, Russia and the Netherlands.
My undergraduate degrees are in Computer Science, Marketing & Philosophy (with a minor in Journalism). And I received my Masters degree in Philosophy focussing on Ethics.
I’m neither left nor right- as an ethicist, I try look at the world by what is right and wrong. I don’t believe in the concept of political parties- politicians should represent their constituents, not party politics.
