I'm an industrious full-stack developer, creative coder, and audiovisual performance artist. I love designing and developing software that enables meaningful experiences for people. With a focus on front-end development, I primarily make use of web technologies for developing both web and desktop applications. I'm a firm advocate of user-centered design and apply best practice UI and UX design principles in my work. With a background in computer graphics and media design, my experience also includes visualisation, simulation, and real-time applications.

More about me:

  • I am the author of Visor, a tool for live visual performance that combines live coding and VJing practices.
  • I studied computer graphics (MSc) at Victoria University of Wellington, publishing research in the 2019 and 2020 International Conferences on Live Coding.
  • I currently work at OpenStar Technologies, developing internal tools and control systems with a focus on the UX/UI design of both graphical user interfaces and human-machine interfaces.
  • I previously worked at Village Kit, improving the website for their product Grid Kit - a modular construction system for furniture and more.
  • I previously worked at Optimal Workshop, developing tools to help customers conduct user research and improve the user experience of their products.

  • Outside of daylight hours, I perform as a DJ and VJ under the artist names Innerbound and VISOR respectively.
