An "about me" thread because the bio field is too short.

I was born and raised near Vancouver, BC, Canada and moved to the Edmonton, Alberta area when I got married. We now live in a small town of 1,500, 45 minutes north of Edmonton.

I got married in 2013 and we currently have two girls and a boy, plus an annoying dog.

In 2018, my wife and I both converted to Catholicism, having been affiliated with various Protestant churches since birth. (More on that here:

My political affiliations are somewhat uncommon for the various demographics that apply to me, and I have a hard time labelling them in a few hundred characters.

My predominant cultural heritage is Dutch, and I try to keep some of that sticking around. I have a decent understanding of the Dutch language and continue to improve it.

You can pronounce my last name with English rules which sounds like my forefathers ran a dog-breeding business, or the correct way with Dutch rules, 'Bray-der-lawnd, which means "wider land".

I'm a "solopreneur" (as much as I dislike that term) and spend my work days building websites, producing various forms of digital media, and consulting in related fields.

When I have spare time and not doing something with the family, I'm brewing kombucha, shooting photos with cameras that don't have batteries, practising my voice-acting skills, or reading a book.
