An Expat Canuck living in Brazil
An Internet entrepreneur since before the Web was born (circa 1993), back then we developed commercial sites on Compuserve, Prodigy and AOL. While living in Boca Raton, Florida a colleague who was working at IBM Research, introduced me to the Mosaic browser (aka Netscape), subsequently I was amongst the first people to surf the Web, and ever since then, passionately involved in Internet business development.
From Kelowna, B.C. Canada originally, and after being based in South Florida for 12 years, traveling throughout the Bahamas, Caribbean, Central and South America, moved to Sao Paulo, Brazil in 2004. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to do something good and important with my passion for web development. Macumba Beach and the beaches south of there, including Litoral Norte are my favorite places on earth, naturally I wanted to do something that was motivating, such as report about the beauty of this region. Then one day I found an old source of information about the wild orchid family of Brazil, immediately I knew that this was important information, about a plant species in peril, and that someone needed to help save them. My mission began.
I’ve spent too much of my lifetime in pursuit of money, and not enough time in pursuit of beauty. The web design company I founded on 9/9/99 called Silicon Palms has enabled me to learn everything I needed to know about Internet communications and online marketing, as well as provide me with the resources to chase a dream. Now, with the Macumba Beach project, I’m turning a dream of doing something useful for the world, into a reality. My mission is to help save the wild orchid and the Atlantic Forest of Brazil.
