Pragmatic Dreamer

I consider myself a pragmatic dreamer that strives to keep doing incredible things with inspiring people. I have a proven track record spanning two decades of delivering award-winning projects for leading international, and local brands, including Toyota, Samsung, MSN & Microsoft.

I am business-savvy, yet fluent in geek and creative, and love building and mentoring talented teams. My sleeves are permanently rolled up, and I have always been passionate about software craftsmanship and full-stack architecture.

My software career has spanned many languages, and platforms, including large CMS builds for global properties, financial applications, mobile apps, and challenging builds for mobile games. I am currently focussing on fullstack development using JavaScript. I have also been working with C# since it was first released and have extensive experience in Unity3D.

I have been fortunate to judge leading industry awards and was the founder and organizer of the Code Craftsmanship Meetups, a 320 member meetup of software craftsman focussing on progressive technology and best practices.

I am a certified Yachtmaster with a deep love for the ocean. I have recently sailed from South Africa across the South Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean with my family on Evenflow, our 40' Sailing Catamaran. I am now living in the beautiful state of Hawaii.
