Software architect and developer, currently Director of Architecture at a Canadian software company in Toronto. I use a variety of technologies but at work it's generally C++, HTML, ASP (JScript), Flex, and SVG. For personal stuff, I tend to use PHP, C#, perl, and everything I use at work. :)

I've been designing and developing for well over a decade in the enterprise software market, first with IP billing, now with ticketing (no, not TicketMaster). I'm a classic case of a jack-of-all-trades, but my intuition is good and I pick up programming languages like a sponge picks up water.

I'm a moderator on Photography.SE and I'm an avid amateur photographer and especially enjoy nature and macro photography. I've also started getting into more studio oriented stuff, acquiring some lighting, background stands, and other gadgets for that purpose. My current weapon of choice is the Nikon D800. Check out my website for some of my photography DIY projects, some of which have been featured on the well-known DIY Photography site.

I'm now on 500px and you can see my portfolio that is in dire need of growth...

I'm also a moderator pro-tem on Pets.SE because I have a keen love and interest in animals. Over the years, I've had as companions dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, fish, turtles, and budgies. As a result, I've learned a lot about caring and enjoying, sometimes the hard and sad way.

comment begginer underwater photography
Hi there... I don't want to discourage you, but I think you need to narrow down the question a bit better. There are plenty of options out there, so what questions do you actually have that prevent you from determining what setup is best for you? Have you looked at the options? Is there information missing that prevents you from assessing those options?

comment Getting Second Camera - Suggestion (Canon 5D III vs Sony A7R / A7s)
I think this can probably be rephrased to be less opinion oriented, but right now it's basically more discussion like. You could try asking the site chat room, it's not always active, but many drop in from time to time.

comment What is this screw on top of my tripod?
It's not covered by the earlier question, the earlier question asks about a standard for the tripod mount, this question doesn't know what is expected to be attached. I don't see the duplication.

comment How to set task for beginner photographers which should have lesson in it
This is a very open-ended, discussion oriented request. Spend a bit of time on the site and you can gain enough reputation to use the chat features to have that type of discussion.
