Bartholomew cannot resist all things AV, whether it’s enjoying a close up view of a projector screen, or batting at cursors as they move across a monitor. The ding of a Zoom call is a call to action.


Maya is not only a loyal companion but great at keeping your feet warm during those cold Alberta winter days. She’s also great at reminding you to get up from your desk and stretch because she loves playing the “inside outside” game. Always concerned about my health… *sarcasm*

Happy and Yuki

I have two dogs. Happy and Yuki. Happy is our security guard, no one come in our until he/she is allowed and permitted by Happy. Yuki is the opposite one, he will welcome even a thief.

When i come home from a long day at work, these two keep on waiting on me. All the stress and tiredness flies away when i see the weighing tales. The perfect Love.

Chi and Luna

She is our little rescue kitten Chi, found under a shed, we have her mum Luna too.


We brought Jessie home when she was 11 weeks old. She is an incredibly sweet Husky, although stubborn at times, she loves to play, is a great companion, and senses when the stress levels are high. What does she do, you might ask? She talks to us in her deep Husky voice to lighten the mood. In IT, finding a balance at times is challenging. Jessie forces us to focus on exercise, getting fresh air, and appreciating and celebrating the small things in life. She helps to take the challenging situations and put things in perspective, and helps to shift and open the mindset to new and creative solutions.
