314 - 30th Avenue NE
I work as a freelance computer consultant specializing in web application development and a variety of content management and publishing projects. I was the editor of Canada's national chess magazine En Passant for six years, and have authored several bi-lingual multimedia Training DVDs for ChessBase of Germany since the publication of my first work in 1998. I am now working on my fifth project for them.
I am also active at the volunteer level, having served seven terms as President of the Saskatchewan Chess Association, five terms as Governor of the Chess Federation of Canada, and one term as a member of the National Appeals Committee.
Among my hobbies is of course chess, where I have competed successfully at numerous national championships and, in correspondence chess, at the world championship level with organizations like IECG and ICCF.
Challenging in a different way is my twenty year competitive career in amateur bodybuilding, and participation in both outdoor and indoor Masters Premier soccer league action as a starting central defender and defensive midfielder. Other interests include travel and fast cars, as well as Belgian chocolate and everything mocha!
