about

I’m a software and interactive media developer based in Toronto. I’m a strong generalist, the dreaded “creative technologist,” with experience working in (and sometimes leading) various teams in self-owned, creative and professional environments across tech.

I’m interested in the burgeoning decentralised web; “play” and user interfaces; enacting stories through interfaces; and rethinking the role and social integration of personal computers in our everyday lives. Currently I’m helping build Urbit with Tlon.

Previously, I’ve written and directed video games with Aether Interactive, creating experimental narratives using computer interface tropes. Our games, as well as my side projects, can be found on itch.io. I’ve also written and performed music as a member of Lapsed Catholics.

I have an academic background in film and media theory + history. I apply it with interests in cybernetics, science fiction, and more on this blog.
