Im a telecommunications consultant, environmentalist, writer and critic of science and medicine.
My consulting company is Cellular Networking Perspectives Ltd. For this company I work as a number administrator for IFAST. Most CDMA phones outside the United States and Canada get a number (International Roaming MIN) assigned by me. Luckily we give them out a million at a time. I am also a consultant to a number of major wireless companies on issues of both standards and numbering problems.
I was one of the founders of the Alberta Greens (Green Party of Alberta), I edited their newsletter for over a decade, was the partys president until October 2004, and the partys Chief Financial Officer until December 2008. The party was destroyed by a hostile takeover initiated in late 2008, at which point I became CFO of the Vision 2012 society, dedicated to re-establishing the party. This was successful in late 2011 (a little ahead of schedule, judging by the name) and I was the first CFO of the EverGreen Party of Alberta later renamed the Green Party of Alberta. I resigned in May, 2014.
I also was founder of the Alberta Reappraising AIDS Society, am on the advisory council of AnotherLook and created the JusticeForEJ.com site. In 2008 I was appointed President of Rethinking AIDS, a position I still hold.
I have three children Aran, Erica and Julia. We were owners of several cats, especially the paraplegic cat Petunia who died after about 5 years of disability, but lived a privileged life until then.
I like to think that I have a great sense of humour (some just say that my humor grates on their nerves). Someone always laughs at my jokes, even if its just me. See if you share it.
