Every few months, we have a drawing to give away two roundtrip domestic airline tickets from Frontier Airlines to one lucky person who’s recently tried out our online NetEqualizer demo. The time has come to announce this round’s winner.

And the winner is…John Shoff of Reality Bytes Inc.

About John Shoff (Courtesy of

I am a long term resident of Drumheller, Alberta.  I was born and raised in Drumheller and have lived in the town for most of my adult life.

At a fairly young age, I developed a huge interest in computers, and basically everything electronic in nature.  I was intrigued by a device that could do so much, yet is so commonly misunderstood.

I feel that my interest in computers was the main reason for starting this company, and first and formost our goal is to stay on the leading edge of what technology can do.  In this industry more than any other, a few months of neglect can lead to a significant loss in the understanding of what the industry is doing, and where the industry is heading.

I spend a large portion of my “free” time dedicating myself to research and development of the latest trend or gadget in the technology sector.

I do however have many other passions.  Growing up, I was very much into hockey and other sports.  I was involved in Drumheller Minor Hockey for many years, and I am glad to see Drumheller Minor hockey developing, especially now with Drumheller having a Junior A hockey team.

Travel is a huge interest of mine, and I have been to a lot of the globe already, but that still amounts to only a small percentage of where I still have yet to go.  I find the different cultures across our planet have a lot to teach us.  In North America in general, and specifically I find in Alberta, we are a very driven culture, set to push the limits of what our body can handle in terms of stress load, and work load.  It has been a real eye opening experience to see how some other very different cultures interact.

If I had to describe myself in a few words, I would say I am very driven, compassionate, and open minded.  In regards to the latter, it cannot be said enough that the more we learn, the more we realize that we truely understand very little.

John Shoff is a proud member in good standing of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and has been involved with PCs and computer network design for over 10 years.
