Where I’m from
🇦🇺 I was born and raised in the southeast suburbs of Victoria, Australia — a place almost perfecting the ‘surbubia as giant nursery’ vision of urban development.
I was raised by a tireless single mother, kept up good grades, and played way too much Call of Duty. I never wanted to program computers, right up until around 23 years old when programming computers became all I wanted to do.
What I do now
Currently, I help build modal.com, a serverless cloud platform built for developers and data scientists sick of wrestling Kubernetes. Scroll down to see some personal dashboard stats powered by Modal!
Where I’m at now
🗽 Today, I live in NYC. When I’m not working, you can find me walking a new part of the five boroughs, or stopped in a park to read. There’s a lot to love in this vast, grubby city, and I hope to see all of it by foot.
What I used to do
I spent 3.5 years at Canva, joining when it had almost 300 engineers and leaving when it had about 1800. I joined as a graduate, hobbling around with a broken leg, and ended up as team lead of ML Platform. The whole way through I grew under the mentorship of Greg Roodt.
