Background and Education
I was born in Victoria, British Columbia but moved to Oakville, Ontario when I was five. I attended The University of Western Ontario and Fanshawe College in London, Ontario and left with a Bachelors in Media, Information and Technoculture from Western and a diploma in Multimedia Design and Production from Fanshawe.
Starting as “the web guy” at a print shop in London, Ontario, I quickly found my passion was in creating a great user experiences. I focused on mastering performance-based development in a world with hundreds of different screen sizes to consider. I’ve worked with some of the largest brands in Canada through my time in advertising (TAXI) and a user experience agency (Jet Cooper), then spent four years at Shopify creating a team dedicated building world-class themes and then a portal for merchants to enhance their marketing reporting.
