I was born and grew up in London, Ontario. I went to school at and graduated from the University of Waterloo and Carnegie Mellon University . I have lived in London, ON; Waterloo, ON; Pittsburgh, PA; Chicago, IL; Austin, TX and Toronto, ON.
I’ve wanted to build products that people love for a long time. I’ve owned and used a Macintosh since about 1987. I used to think that to do this it was all about usability. I’ve since come around to having a more complete picture of products, technology, organizations, customers, people and design.
I believe in change, uncertainty, freedom, progress, science, compassion, craft and winning.
