About me

So who the heck am I?

David Stephen

Developer, Designer , Geek

My name is David Stephen. I was born in Farnborough, United Kingdom and moved to Calgary Alberta when I was about 3 years old. Since moving to Canada I have learned to do all the things Canadians do such as ski, say eh, and be extremely polite all the time. In all seriousness though I do love being a Canadian. Since I was about 5 years old I have had a strange obsession with technology, computers specifically. I remember my Mom told me a story about how she caught me surfing the internet when I was around 5 years old looking up websites like “Disney.com.” Apparently I got these crazy ideas from seeing their URL’s on TV commercials. Since then I have grown into a huge geek, I built my first computer at the age of 14, learned how to make minor scripts by the age of 17 and it has continued to escalate from there. I am currently working as a Web Developer for a company called Strategies for Success. The rest has yet to be written.
