Hey. đź‘‹

I’m a software developer, infrastructure architect, and entrepreneur based out of MontrĂ©al in QuĂ©bec, Canada. I co-founded and co-run Linear Forest, a software development consultancy and product company.


I’ve been doing software development professionally since 2009. Previously, I worked for Shopify (Developer, Payments Platform) and Wealthsimple (Senior Software Engineer, Platform Security), as well as few small agencies and startups. My first real job was working over the summers at Metalab during my high school years.


I am neither a prolific nor consistent writer, but every now and again I write something that resonates with people.
