Design & Engineering

I’ve been designing and implementing software for over a decade, with clients and collaborators that include Apple, Twitter, and the American Music Awards.

In 2014 I joined the design team at Black Pixel; a mobile-focused digital products agency whose software is used by over 100 million people daily. In 2016, I formally transitioned into the engineering group, where a new Web Services Team was created under my lead. In the years that followed, I grew this team from three to more than twenty highly-engaged developers across a wide variety of projects and technologies.

Black Pixel was acquired by Hypergiant in late 2018, where I am presently Director of Web Development.

Offline, I like working with my hands, collecting twentieth-century furniture and objects, and playing hockey, soccer, and music.

Tried my hand at painting a few weeks back. Like the presence of a big canvas, even if all I’m capable of painting are kindergarten shapes.
Meet Zuri. He’s the closest thing to a domesticated polar bear we could find. Also answers to “Zuzu” and “Pig”. #samoyed

A little over a year with this kitchen. The range hood and outlet covers are unlacquered brass treated with acid to accelerate patina. The linear light fixture is the largest of 5 I made for the house, and changes colour temperature throughout the day. #interiors
