Here is a copy of a recent CV.

Previous Life in Academia

I completed my Ph. D. in Computer Science at the Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia. I was a member of the Distributed Systems Group while lecturing in the department of Computer Science at UBC for the 1998-1999 academic year. My thesis topic was "The Design, Implementation and Evaluation of a Variable Bit Rate Continuous Media File Server for a High-Speed Network".

This work and the remainder of the project is further described in the Distributed Continuous Media Filesystem Project.


Teaching Experience

Other Stuff


Winter Sports: I still play hockey, though not very well. I curl as well, at Nutana.

Summer Sports: Seems that all I can get to is golf, and then not all that often.


Music: There's time for a bit of guitar and piano on the side, but not as much as I'd like. See update on the personal page for music developments.
