Alex Aalto

In the past 16 years I have witnessed the rise of the internet age, during which time I have been involved in the creation of a lot of web sites. From the very beginning where I cut my teeth working on large sites for the Canucks, Mountain Equipment Coop and Snapple to award winning sites for Tourism Vancouver and Kraft Dinner to our current work at Aalto Interactive, I have seen or used almost every technology out there. Whether I was the senior programmer at Columbus Group Communications, a systems architect at Telus, or running my own business, I have prided myself on delivering cost effective and high quality solutions. More importantly my experience has given me a sense of best practices and an appreciation for how to ethically develop good software. At the heart of this is the firm belief that any solution we develop must make life simplier and better for our clients and end users.
