I respectfully and gratefully acknowledge that I live, work and play within the traditional territory of the K’ómoks Nation.
I also wish to acknowledge the land on which this webserver operates (Toronto). For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and I am grateful to have the opportunity to benefit from this land.
This is a place where I blog about my life as a schizophrenic and entrepreneur. Sometimes those things overlap, and I’ll blog about that, too. I am largely successful at managing my schizophrenia and reading my blog should hopefully give you plenty of insights if you’re seeking to manage your schizophrenia as well.
I also write poetry, though I should warn you I hate reading poetry and find the poetry community largely stuffy and/or pretentious. I have nothing against you if you’re a poet, I just prefer to limit my poetry indulgence to simply writing it.
This website also hosts the designs I’ve made over the years that are not on the Objektiv Digital portfolio. This roughly translates to showcasing the work from my college years.
I am lightly dabbling in the cryptocurrency world with non-fungible tokens and enthusiasm for the Basic Attention Token. Other than that, I am a complete novice to crypto and don’t have much interest in it outside of those two things.
Over the years since starting college, I have worked on 3 major projects; Stridr, Curious Markings, and Enderbook. Stridr has since been shut down. I still work on Curious Markings and Enderbook casually.
I am the partner to Brittany, a woman that has taught me more about the man I want to be than anyone else. I am the uncle to a couple of adorable munchkins that I plan on corrupting with my “uncle” sense of humour – just as my uncle Mark did before me 😈. I am the son of Catherine and grandson of Jack, professional salespeople who taught me the skills I needed to become the decent salesman and decent human being that I am today. Lastly, I am the grandson of Helen, the person who exemplified the traits of honoring heritage, generosity, and individuality that I strive to someday match.
