about:Former compiler writer, currently head of technology for a hedge fund, still write code for 80% of my day.

I love my job and my team but I'm always willing to talk if you have an interesting opportunity. I can do consulting for anyone interested in algorithmic trading, and insights into the Canadian financial industry.

If you need a trading system built, I'm the person you should be talking to. I love to talk algo strategies and implementation!

Currently using Complex Event Processing, F#, C#, Perl and ZeroMQ. R has been a mainstay in my toolbox for the past few years. It's replaced excel for me for all but the most simple tasks. I probably spend half my day in RStudio and in finance saying something replaced excel is high praise.

I've used C and C++ for more than 10 years and I'm getting fairly competent in Haskell and OCaml.

If you've made it this far and feel like you'd like to chat, please don't be shy at all and reach out to me. I'd love to chat.
