I studied Mechanical Engineering and then Electronics and Computer Science in Auckland. Worked at IBM where I helped create an early touch screen app for the AirNZ self checkin kiosk, and gained experience in project management and consulting.
Next was a move to London and creating Ruby/Rails apps and services in Notting Hill. A notable creation was a ruby and AWS music file transcoder for a UK digital music provider. Then a move to Vancouver, where I joined Live Current Media and worked on scaling high traffic Rails sites as a Director of Engineering.
In 2010 I founded an App Development shop in Gastown which became popular for "Making Amazing Apps". This provided the connections which lead to helping build and grow Invoice Simple and in 2020, an acquisition.
Building, growing and selling a product, was a key life goal. With that achieved I'm now looking to expand my experience and knowledge in Product Led Growth, Product Strategy and Product Management Leadership.
