About

Hi.

I’m Rob. I go by @robcee on Twitter. Nice to meet you.

Deb and I live in a house down by the river. We are into growing things that taste delicious.

I’ve written three science fiction books, Trajectory Book 1, Trajectory Book 2 and now Seedfall. Check ’em out if you like suspenseful scifi. I am also now in the anthology Explorations: First Contact from Woodbridge Press. Another anthology coming soon! See Sci Fi Explorations for our newsletter with anthology updates and book deals.

A few of my other interests include Photography, Video and Audio recording and editing, Technology and Science. I’ve been a software engineer and a manager of same. I used to work for Mozilla so there is a bunch of stuff here related to Firefox and Developer Tools still lurking around. I have worked as a consultant for government and in the aerospace industry as a software engineer. I have a wide range of interests and from time to time I’ll write about them.

I am a Transport Canada certified UAV Pilot with a Restricted Operator Radio License. I fly a 3DRobotics IRIS+ quadcopter that I’ve had for a few years now and rebuilt from scratch several times for upgrades. I took part in the Developer Program and provided feedback that made these quads a little better and safer to fly. If you need aerial video or photos in eastern Canada, send me a note via my Contact Page.

I am also Robcee on LinkedIn if you want the deep background.

I have a tumblr that my robots post to, but rarely look at myself. Maybe there’s something surprising there.

I like food.

And that’s pretty much it! Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to drop a line here or one of the other readily available links buried in this page.

    Hi!

    PLEASE PLEASE bring back the bookmark deiconizer!! I´m way to stupid to get rid of these ugly things by myself – even after reading your explanation.

    Have a nice day and keep up the Sandwich thing!
