I'm a developer and designer based in Sydney, Australia
I'm a Creative Developer at Code on Canvas. I completed a Masters in Interaction Design and Electronic Arts, with a specialisation in Audio and Acoustics, at the University of Sydney earlier this year.
I am passionate about design and also enjoy development. In fact, I see tremendous value in building skills at the intersection of design and code, allowing me to move from research, user experience and prototyping to a functional product. This means I also have an appreciation for the possibilities and constraints of the medium as I transition across these roles.
Before moving to Sydney, I lived in Singapore for about 12 years. I was with IBM for 7 years as a senior consultant across Southeast Asia. My role covered areas across two service lines - Strategy & Analytics (S&A) and Interactive Experience & Mobile (iXM). Before that, I was part of SenseGraphics in Stockholm and a couple of other startups. When I was there, some friends and I put together the Hej!2007 conference which turned out a lot better than we hoped. It was a pretty exhilarating experience.
I was born in Muscat and grew up in Beau Bassin, Mauritius. I majored in computer engineering with an interest in networks and computer graphics from the National University of Singapore. I also spent a year studying systems engineering and human computer interaction at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. I hold a minor in technology entrepreneurship.
A couple of stints in startups and that year in Stockholm sparked an intense interest in technology, startups and open source. Over time, that has broadened to a love for curiosity, exploration, hacking and doing. Today, I continue to pursue other projects as best I can. I also enjoy gaming and metal.
