My last 12 years have been spent designing and creating things, mostly software. For a bit I worked at Shopify, as it scaled from 300 to 3000+ employees, on the foundations of their App Platform and their product design team in Toronto.

In Canada, my work is used by a couple of large grocery chains and by mostly everyone buying a movie ticket online. Worldwide, it has impacted 500,000+ Shopify merchants, the developers building for them, and their customers buying through social media channels.

These days I work at Jupiter building software for personal care professionals. I wrote about why I'm doing this here.

My spare time is spent teaching design, writing, thru-hiking long trails, studying, and competing in physique competitions. I live in Toronto with a lizard named Omelette.
