About Me


I mainly live and work in Wellington, New Zealand. I am currently working on Human Apps, building automation tools.

I also work on a project called Vast. Vast is a tool for crafting 3D objects and environments directly in VR.

I spent most of 2014 to 2016 in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA. I initially lived in Mountain View, before moving to the Redwood City/San Carlos area. I worked at iCracked on Ocean, a hardware project. Prior to this, I was co-founder of a company called SocialBox. We got funded by Y Combinator for the W14 batch.

Between 2010 and 2013, I was co-founder and CTO of PlayCoMo, a company that makes mobile phone games. I ran the company's office out of Wellington, New Zealand, managing our staff in five different countries (USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Indonesia).

Before PlayCoMo I made indie mobile phone games under the moniker @hackdirt. I also built iOS apps for various companies in New Zealand, Australia, and the UK (including Subway NZ, Pizza Hut, Wagamama, and Royal Bank of Scotland).

From 2007 to 2008 I was lead developer at awesome education software startup Arlo. Arlo powers a training platform for a growing number of schools and companies in New Zealand and Australia, such as Xero, Microsoft, and the University of Auckland.

From 2004 to 2007 I wrote enterprise software (mostly financial modelling software and business applications) for various companies in New Zealand.
