about

goofy twosomeDan Jones was born in Montréal, Québec in 1979, the youngest son of a family of Bahá’í pioneers. His father is an American-born writer and editor, and his mother is an Acadian-born artist. His family ended up in the Ottawa area in 1986 and stayed there for quite a while, where he received much of his primary school education in French, and the rest of it in English. After completing a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and specializing in website and interface design (during which he coded up a silly thing called what’s your pokéname?), Dan packed up and left for the towns of Victoriaville and Drummondville, Québec, to offer two years of service to the Bahá’í community there. He returned to Ottawa in July 2004, spending his time continuing to serve in various aspects, creating new web designs, and making himself useful. In 2009, during a period of international service in Vietnam, he met a lovely Baha’i woman named Quynh, whom he married the following year. He enjoys travel, nature, music and singing, poetry, photography, kung fu movies, gaming, cycling, teaching, being of service to people, and sharing a laugh or two with friends. He currently works at the Conference Board of Canada, maintaining their website and generally making things look pretty.

doberman pizza is a personal website he’s maintained since March 1994. It’s gone through many changes over nearly two decades of existence, having acted as a testing ground for his web design and development skills. He updates it every once in a while, along with baha’i children’s class ideas, a blog dedicated to learning about children’s classes as a core activity of human society.
