Dexter holds a Bachelor's in Software Engineering from the University of Ottawa, as well as a Master's in Space Studies from the International Space University.

SkyWatch came about through the need to increase the pace of discovery in the field of astronomy and astrophysics by creating novel ways of communicating that type of data to those who need it. This was successfully achieved through the public release of the SkyWatch App in November 2015, which is now being used in over 60 organizations and institutions worldwide.
SkyWatch is now focusing inward on Earth observation, and creating a product around the handling of remote sensing data and imagery.
