Welcome to My Website

This site is primarily focussed on my pursuit of philately. But as time progresses I will add sections on my other hobbies and interests.

I am a member of the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada (RPSC), the British North America Philatelic Society (BNAPS), International Society of Worldwide Stamp Collectors (ISWSC), the American Topical Association (ATA), the Ships on Stamps Unit of the ATA, the Chess on Stamps Study Unit, the Christmas Philatelic Club, and the Gastronomy Study Unit of the ATA. I also belong to the Sports Philatelists International, Astronomy Study Unit of the ATA and the Mathematical Study Unit.

As well as being a member of the above organizations I am also the webmaster for the ISWSC, the American Topical Association, Gastronomy Unit and the Universal Ship Cancellation Society.

  • Site Updates in progress

    I am redesigning the site again to further streamline the look, freshen it up a bit and make it more compliant with HTML 5. I decided to go back to Jekyll as the engine. While I enjoyed WordPress, I like the full control and balance that using a static site generator provides.

    For those who don’t know, Jekyll, is a ruby program that uses markdown to generate html pages. Jekyll is blog aware and allows the convenience of a traditional blog site with out having to configure a database or worry about messing around with php files. If you would like more information on Jekyll there is a link at the bottom of the page.

    I hope you like the new look. As always questions and comments are welcome. Just drop me an email.
