I'm an Information Technology Professional and self proclaimed social media guru. When I'm not tinkering with computers or teaching tomorrow's technicians you can find me enjoying time with my family, taking in a movie or playing video games. I love music, especially live and enjoy writing about and talking with up and coming artists as well as hit makers from today and yesterday. I'm also a blogger. I write the Tech Connection blog for The Ottawa Citizen and recently launched Sound Check Entertainment, an independent festivals and entertainment blog (covered Capital Hoedown Country Music Festival, RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest, Boots and Hearts, Calgary Stampede and more) In 2010 I launched Pape Technology Services, initially an IT company focusing on consumer PC repair services we have grown to a full business service provider and last year formally rebranded to Pape Technology and Business Services. We offer everything from PC support and training to social media and brand development. Over the last few years I have worked numerous IT contracts and am really hoping that either a permanent job or success in my own business is on the horizon. I look forward to new, exciting opportunities and never stray from a challenge.
