Welcome!

I’m a writer who mostly focuses on stories about technology, gaming, entertainment and more. Ever since I could remember, I’ve always been obsessed with technology, it has been something I could relate to and easily understand. Also, technology is something that’s always constantly changing or evolving, with each day bringing something new.

It wasn’t until I discovered Jon Rettinger of TechnoBuffalo and his YouTube channel and site back in 2009, that he really truly inspired me to start my own technology news site, TheCanadianTechie.

I started the site in 2012 and have continued to write articles for it ever since. TheCanadianTechie not improved my writing skills and provided a creative outlet but it also gave me a chance to share my love of technology with the world and to meet all kinds of people.
