You sink ten years of your life into your career and you feel stretched. At the end of the decade you look back and you say to yourself, "Well, that didn't need to be so stressful," and so that's what...
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.
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.
