RESUME OBJECTIVE 
My main areas of interest lie in
RealTime Computer Graphics,
RealTime Physics Simulations, and
Artificial Intelligence.
I have been programming since Grade II,
and I have been selftaught in these fields,
as well as video game programming, since Grade III.
These skills can be applied to any realtime graphics application,
as well as to high accuracy, non realtime products. 
EDUCATION 

COMPETITION RESULTS 
The following are results of several
Canadian Mathematics Competitions,
American Mathematics Competitions,
and Provincial Physics and Chemistry competitions.
Please note that the grade schools I attended in Yarmouth
(Yarmouth Consolidated Memorial High School
and
Maple Grove Education Centre)
did not have specialized classes to review past competition
tests, nor did we take time out of our curriculum to study / prepare for the
competitions, as is done in the majority of the top placing schools.
Upon seeing the results of the top placing students in my province,
I often found that I was ranked high among a class full of students from
a particular school that allocates an entire course solely for
preparation of such tests. This gives their class an obvious, distinct advantage
over students like me who have no knowledge or idea of
any potential content within upcoming competitions.

Grade 12 Euclid Math Contest
 Canadian Mathematics Competition (Note: due to insufficient Y.C.M.H.S. records, a request for information was made to the University of Waterloo. Ian VanderBurgh stated, "By the looks of it (a hand search!), you finished 7th in Nova Scotia. Nationally, harder to tell. According to our records, 3.1% of approximately 10000 finished with scores at least 71, so I would say that your national ranking was close to 300. That's the best we can do!")

Grade 12 Euclid Math Contest
 Canadian Mathematics Competition (Note: I wrote this contest in Grade 11. Any student in a grade lower than intended grade for the contest is allowed to compete. This was the first year I was made aware of such opportunities. I regret contest administrators had never brought this up in earlier years.)
