Been a while since I posted. Quite a lot has happened. I had been searching for a perm job for a while because I wanted to get out of software consulting - it is a hard way to live.

If you live in Vancouver, drop me a line at newcomer@vancouverdiaries.com and lets meet for coffee or a beer. Or soon, you'll be able to come hear me play the keyboard at the various open mics around town. Keep on eye on my live performance schedule to find out when I'm playing.
