My last 12 years have been spent designing and creating things, mostly software. My longest stint was at Shopify, as it scaled from 300 to 3000+ employees, on the foundations of their App Platform and their product design team in Toronto. I did this while teaching design on the side as a way to foster growth in my profession.
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 writing, thru-hiking long trails, studying, and competing in physique competitions. I live in Toronto with a lizard named Omelette.
