Welcome to Argalax


Hi, my name is Alexander and this is my website.

I live in Toronto, Canada, and work as a Senior IT Professional.

In spare time I enjoy writing some code, developing web applications, working on my robot, reading sci-fi, finance and technical books, visiting my cabin in the wilderness and travel when I can.
