Software Designer


I'm a software designer, with over ten years of experience. Built up while working with teams big and small across the United States, Japan and Australia.

Now, I'm back home. Living in Canterbury, New Zealand, where I spend my free time reading about the history of video game development and riding track bikes.


Things I spend my time reading over, tinkering with and learning about.

  • Open-Source Technologies
  • Cryptography
  • Game Design / Theory
  • TypeScript / Lua


Presently I lead design at Moneytree, where we are building Japan's privacy-first financial data platform. Before that I worked with product and design teams at Rainforest, Origami, Xero and Facebook.

For more details feel free to reach out and I'll be happy to provide a more in-depth overview.


A few ideas that I've gone ahead and built in my spare time. You can support them if you like by donating here.

  • Gomoku Narabe — A PICO-8 game of Gomoku against an entertaining AI player.
  • PICO-8 Styles — A set of Figma color styles from the fantasy console PICO-8.
  • Manifest — An incredibly simple grid-based pinboard for note taking.
  • Tweet Tray — Compose tweets quickly from the desktop without any distractions.
