David is a senior management consultant and information architect. He has managed more than 100 projects, using waterfall, spiral, incremental development and Agile methodologies — in systems for knowledge-management, eLearning and XML/SGML component content-management — in the USA, Canada, UK, Switzerland, Denmark, Greenland, Alaska, and Trinidad & Tobago.
David'sSecond experience with online information systems began with videotex systems based on Telidon. He co-managed the international Telidon project for the Third General Assembly of the Inuit Circumpolar Council in Frobisher Bay (now Iqaluit) on Baffin Island.
David once spent a week on HMCS Onondaga writing Life on a Canadian Submarine for Weekend Magazine. For the Montreal Star he was on board HMCS Huron for her Maker's Trials and experienced a midnight call to boat stations during a December blizzard off Anticosti Island.
He also flew ice patrol from Summerside in Prince Edward Island to Iqaluit in Baffin Island in an Electra L-188 used for ice reconnaissance. During the same period he was a columnist for Driving Magazine, and volunteered as Chief Pit Marshal at Le Circuit Mt Tremblant during the heyday of Can-Am racing, and after training in fighting gasoline and methanol fires at a BP oil refinery.
David writes four very occasional blogs (infrequently!) and has published two technical books. He also makes an amazing Trinidad hot sauce that has been called a gateway drug for capsaicin addiction;)
In his current life he lives downtown without cats, dogs, horses, cows or other creatures.
