About Me

Welcome to Aethendas! I created Aethendas as my own little corner of the Internet to share the photos, stories, and creations of things I love. The site started off as a travel log, featuring posts of the places I’ve been to, and the photos I took along the way. Eventually I began adding a portfolio of other websites I worked on. More recently I began sharing my cake decorating and baking projects.

Now a little about me. I love to travel, as you can learn more about here. I have been to every continent (my last was Asia via Bhutan/Thailand in 2013). I am also a geomatics engineer, working in geospatial information systems and spending my days programming. But despite using the left side of my brain for my career, I use the right side of my brain for my cake decorating endeavors. As a child, cupcakes were my favourite, but cookies and wedding cakes are also fun.

When I am not working and baking, I am quite active. When I lived in Calgary, Alberta I hiked fairly often during the weekends in nearby Kananaskis and Banff. After moving, I still like hiking, but don’t go so much now that I live further from the mountains. Instead I am learning sabre fencing and getting better at it.
