Chris Kushnir.
Born in Toronto, raised in the ‘burbs (Mississauga).
B.A.Sc Civil Engineering Univ. of Toronto.
M.Eng. Univ. of British Columbia.

Although I started in Geotech Engineering I soon moved into Engineering software development e.g. slope stability models. Several years later, in the early 90's, I migrated to municipal Engineering consulting, primarily developing GIS related solutions for utilities. Although I've done work for water, waste, telco, cable, gas, and electric utilities, my focus has been electric.

I've been using C since ’88 and C++ since ’89. For several years I taught a night-school class in 'Programming in C' at a local University - you never learn so much about a subject as when you teach it.

I started fencing in '86 and when I first graduated made more money as a fencing coach than as an Engineer. I was a varsity coach at UC San Diego from '97 to '04. I now do some coaching/training at the Toronto Fencing Club
