Jairus is a design, security, and web communications professional living in Toronto, Canada.Â He remembers NCSA Mosaic, his first email address started withÂ uunet! and he has been making websites since Netscape 2 was the new and buggy browser.
While he spends most of his working hours designing and implementing digital strategies, he also enjoys hosting workshops on why public institutions should use social media, speaking to publications and media on the subject of digital culture, and writing in the third person.
He consulted with Industry and Heritage Canada on the technological effects of copyright reform, and has been organizing events in support of independent music since he was old enough to attend them. Possibly even before that.
Prior to moving to Toronto, Jairus worked as the Web Communications Coordinator for the Bank of Canada. While in that role he lead the development of a new presentation layer, wrote the social-networking guidelines, liaised with the Federal Reserve, and unsuccessfully lobbied to have Wolverine replace Sir Wilfred Laurier on the five-dollar bill.
