I’ve been musing over how historians would, at best, phrase this time period in history, both as the end of an era and beginning of another.

My primary focus is interaction design and the principle of linguistic relativity: the structure of a language affects the ways in which its speakers are able to conceptualize their world, i.e. their world view, in addition to the syntax of artificial languages.
I attended Langara College with a focus on art history and literature, before continuing my studies at Simon Fraser University in Interaction Design, Linguistics and Literature.
I was first introduced to design principles and practices in 2007 and 2008, where I was a runner-up winner for a snowboard design contest for the Web Directions North Conference.
This conference is now an bi-annual event that covers the full range of interests for web professionals: web design standards, front-end and back-end development, information architecture, interaction design, accessibility and data visualization.
I’m currently in a very happy relationship with the Olympus Pen-E PL1, a robust camera that I received for my university graduation gift.
Since 2005, I've been shooting. As of 2013, I currently own 22 cameras: Canon AE-1, Yashica D, Ricoh LX-22, Canonet28, Vivitar Wide&Slim, Superheadz Ikimono 110, Nikon D70s, Pentax Pearl Optio i-10, Canon Powershot A520, (Lomography) LCA (2), ActionSampler, Superheadz Golden Half, Diana Latitude, Diana Mini, Fisheye No 2, SuperSampler. Polaroid One-Step (2), Polaroid Spectra, Polaroid Spirit.
