I am currently employed by YouTube.
I am interested in computer graphics and digital video. I have a small
website where I post notes and articles on topics in graphics, colour and
video called scanline.ca.
I listen to and compose
electronic music, and have a gear
collection that is pretty respectable. Some of my musical exploits
are detailed at vektor.ca/audio/.
I am interested in telephony, both traditional and VoIP. I have a
website called ss7.ca with my notes and programs
relating to telephony.
I used to write more about projects I worked on, I had a
blog about Eclipse and a
blog about Linux desktop work.
I enjoy taking photos, some of which I posted online at
vektor.ca. Mostly photos I take now just
end up on Facebook
I enjoy writing software. Here are some of my projects.
- tvtime is my realtime deinterlacer
- animate is a nifty line
animation tool that can export flash animations.
- wininfo is a
very useful X application debugging tool.
- exrtools is a collection of
utilities for manipulating high dynamic range images in
- magnify is simple yet
powerful screen magnifier.
- mp3player is the simple
yet effective MP3 playing system I use at home.

player which I have not had time to maintain. It was a great learning
- kphone was my SIP phone. It
is currently maintained by some people at Wirlab network research
center, see wirlab kphone.
- ttrk is my MIDI sequencer with a
tracker-like interface. It's quite cool.
- reetpvr is my video
recorder and compressor application. While it does 'work for me' it is
mostly unfinished. I created a sourceforge project to store the code
and run the CVS.
- thud was a drum machine written
with some friends in second year. It was my first officially "released"
Linux application, and made it at least into Mandrake Linux.
- krad is my tone dialer, an
excuse to release a KDE app called 'krad'.
I have also contributed to a variety of open source projects. Here are some

parsing data from DVD-Video discs.
