Hi, I'm Mike

I am a web developer and an IT consultant living in Calgary, Alberta. I graduated from Mount Royal University with a bachelors in Computer Information Systems. Since then, I've held various roles including IT Support Tech, System Admin, Systems Analyst and Web and Software Developer in my career over these last six years. My qualifications and work history can be viewed on my resumé here.

I use this website to showcase my notable works. Occasionally, I'll write about my travels or something new that I've learned.
