Introduction I started life as the son of a tradesman. I went to trade school and received a certificate in Graphic Arts. For Christmas one year, someone bought me a Commodore 64 computer. A year later I was programming 6502 machine language, writing my own macro-assembler and later C compiler. After this I started working in the computer industry. Programming, hardware, packaging, sales, service and customer support. In 1993, I went back to school to become a teacher. While enrolled in Computer Science at the University of Toronto as a student I also tutored people privately, was a Teaching Assistant and finally a Lecturer at the Department of Computer Science. While still lecturing evenings for the Department of Computer Science I found a job doing Quality Assurance for Texas Instruments. I found I loved the work so much that I quit my job at University of Toronto and started working full time in the field of Quality Assurance and Automated Testing. I have never looked back.
