I'm a Development Manager at Shopify on the Custom Storefronts team. I work on the Storefront API, a public unauthenticated GraphQL API, as well as SDKs that are built on top of it.
Before Shopify, I worked at Zynga as a Senior Software Developer. I worked both as a backend developer on Words With Friends, and as a data engineer building ETLs (and other pipelines) that transform and aggregate huge amounts of User Acquisition data. Before that, I worked at Uken Games as a full stack developer. I have a Bachelor's degree in (Software) Engineering from McMaster University, with a specialization in game design, and a Master's degree in Applied Computing from the University of Toronto.
I'm passionate about mentorship! I am a frequent visitor to University of Toronto, where I occasionally guest lecture, participate in interview workshops, and provide career advice.

Flipbook is an interdisciplinary research project that digitizes the flipbooking experience. The video on the left shows my progress as I created a short animation. The video in the middle gives a brief introduction to the design and features of FlipBook. The video on the right shows an animation made by another graduate student.
