What I’m Up to Now
The following is true as of May 2022.
I moved to Toronto in November of 2015, and started working for Acquia as a support engineer, and as of November 2019, a senior support engineer, and as of July 2021, a lead support engineer. (No, not the metal.) I work with the U.S. east coast team, which is located in Boston, MA, collaborating with them from Toronto. I've been working at home since March 2020 thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the warmer months, I commute by bike a few days a week to Acquia’s downtown Toronto office.
After two years of trying to stay active but not participating in any races, I'm back in the saddle.
Social media I keep updated:
- Twitter is where you can find my various witty remarks.
- Goodreads tells you what books I’m reading.
- Reading.am shows you what articles I’m reading.
- Letterboxd lists the movies I just watched.
- Trakt.tv keeps a record of the TV shows I watch.
- Untappd keeps track of the beers I drink.
- Last.fm logs the music I listen to.
- Foursquare's Swarm
- Olixsoft's Fog of World
- Strava (that's a game, right?)
- Niantic's Ingress (I'm formerly a heavy user, now a light user)
My latest programming project is a self-hosted tool that turns your a Slack channel into a Twitter client. I constantly look for ways to smash together public APIs, especially if there’s a geographic component.
As of September 2017, I have been a director for the Icelandic Canadian Club of Toronto, and since October of 2018 I've served as the secretary. I help out with the Instagram account, the ICCT Twitter account and the Facebook page, and provide what insight I can to the board. I also help out with Nordic Nights, a film As of November 2019, I have been a board member of the Garment District Neighbourhood Association and I maintain the online properties (Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, as well as manage our back-end tools).
I've been coping relatively well with the pandemic. I have a page of posts related to just that on my blog, sorted in forward-chronological order.
Some sub-sites I maintain:
I'm not a photographer, and I don't sail or play a musical instrument or do anything interesting like that.
I still think the scene in Spaceballs where they watch themselves in the movie ("We’re at now now!”) is hilarious.
