I took the name "Hrothgar" from the famous Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf, and adopted it as one of my aliases on the Montreal BBSing scene starting in January 1989. Hrothgar inhabited mostly Amiga BBSes until the closing of Surfside Resort BBS in 1997, prompting his arrival on the Web.
My only other regular BBSing persona, the slightly older "Amorph" (named after a green amorphous critter in the 1987 Rainbow Arts game "Garrison II"), started its existence on Asylum BBS in 1988 and continued to eke out the semblance of a life on McBBS until that board closed in 2000.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History (1994) from Concordia University in Montreal, and a Bachelor of Computer Science degree (1999) in Information Systems, also from Concordia.
I am currently employed as a Software Developer in a small company in St. Laurent, Québec, Canada.
I have had many hobbies, but generally I get tired of them after some number of years. Hobbies of note include:
I believe that this list of hobbies proves that I am a geek.
