I am a software engineer (and hobbyist designer) living in Victoria, BC Canada. I specialize in iOS / Mac and Ruby on Rails. I run a small consulting shop and help companies with their mobile or web needs.

Previously I worked at Pose in California. I was the lead software engineer on both the iOS and Ruby on Rails teams and helped to grow the company to over 3 millions users. Our mobile application has been featured by Apple many times as "App of the Week", "Best New App", and even "App Store Best of the Year".

I grew up in Canada and was born in Whitehorse, Yukon then moved to Waterloo, Ontario for a degree in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo. After finishing my degree I started a software consulting business NeverBored Studios with some fellow graduates and specialized in Ruby and iOS contract work for a few years before moving to California. We launched a number of different iPhone, iPad and Mac apps and made numerous open source contributions.

Some of the technologies I love to use are:

  • Objective-C for Mac or iOS
  • Ruby with Rails, Sinatra, Haml, Sass, Slim, Bourbon, Neat, RSpec and Cucumber
  • CoffeeScript and JavaScript with jQuery, Backbone and Handlebars
  • Sketch, Photoshop, or Illustrator
  • Currently learning Ember and Swift

I've also had the chance to volunteered for a few not for profits doing design and development work:

  • Yukon River Trail Marathon
  • Kluane Chilkat International Bike Relay
  • KW Synchronized Swimming Club
  • Canada Winter Games

When I'm not coding I enjoy reading, cooking, biking, hiking, and snowboarding.
