Hey. đź‘‹

I’m a software developer, entrepreneur, and digital infrastructure expert, based out of MontrĂ©al, QuĂ©bec. I’m a co-founder of Linear Forest, a software agency, and the founder of BlackieOps, an internet infrastructure company.


I’ve been doing software development professionally since 2009, during my free time in middle school. In that time, I’ve worked for Shopify (Developer, Payments Platform) and Wealthsimple (Senior Software Engineer, Platform Security), as well as few small agencies and startups. A large portion of my career was spent at Metalab and their task management app sister company, Flow (defunct).


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