About

Howdy.  The name’s Gord.  See you’ve found my website.

Let’s get down to business.  I’m a developer foremost, because that’s what I love.  I’m passionate about making software that can solve really difficult problems and is also a pleasure to use.

I studied in Waterloo and Toronto, and I’ve even used my education a little bit, but today most of my learning happens spontaneously out of interest.  These days, I spend my days working as lead developer at Brainpark, where we are teaching computers to solve the hard problem of connecting people within companies based on their work. I spend nights and weekends working on top10r.com amongst other projects, and I even try to get away from screens once in a while.

Here, I’ll share what I think or know about coding, startups, health, beer, democracy and whatever else comes up.  Feel free to contact me on twitter or find me at my office.
