I’m Jamie - a software engineer from Toronto, Canada. Currently, I am Senior Software Developer @ Wealthsimple.
I have spent my career working on the design, implementation, and management of web applications ranging from marketing websites & CDPs to inventory management and PoS systems. I have also spent time as an educator, running a lab specializing in 3D printing and robotics, and recording an album (listen here).
In my spare time, I play video games and am currently working on a custom remake of the 1983 Taito Classic arcade game, Ice Cold Beer.
