Giles OrrBlog Resume Papers
I'm a librarian, computer geek, photographer, areligious Buddhist, and ex-engineer from Toronto. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering (Toronto) and another one in Library Science (McGill). I spend my spare time writing Python, HTML, Bash scripts, whatever language I'm learning right now, working with Linux, and watching movies. My favourite hobbies other than computers are photography and travel.
