I originally launched my web-related service offerings in 1998, when I began providing low-level consulting services to local professionals, teaching them about the web and what they could do with it.


After securing a respectable clientele, I decided to branch out in order to offer my services to a wider audience, and I subsequently created a more public home on the web to further the cause in 2005 with the launch of a web services firm called PALSYS.


Since that time, my work has been focused not only on technical development, but also content creation; while it is easily lost behind the media-driven face of the modern web, the written (or typed) word is still the real language that powers information exchange, and I am in the business of promoting words in general.


I am now an online publisher of engaging, enjoyable content on a variety of subjects, working to fill the web with the kind of words that people want to read. My content is published on both websites that I own and those of my clients, helping them to rank well in search engines, draw new traffic, and create new subscribers.


So what is it that I can do for you, exactly? Well, besides being something of a magician with the English language, I also boast sturdy HTML, CSS and PHP skills, along with extensive experience in social media, search engine optimization, and other forms of marketing, allowing me to offer you well-rounded assistance with nearly any project, web-based or otherwise.

For the second time in as many years, my local school board - which governs the education of my children - is threatening job action, potentially a long term strike, in response to the government's threat to make changes to the educational system based on professional recommendations. Those recommendations come as a response to failures perpetuated by the unionized teachers, elected school boards, and Department of...

As a devote follower of the daily news cycle, political goings-on, and the current cultural conundrum facing those of us in the west, it would be impossible for me not to come away from the endless op-eds and social media feeds without having chosen a few favourite and hated commentators and writers from among the many that weigh in on a daily basis. One of my...
