I have over twenty years of experience as a software engineer, technical specialist and engineering leader.
I started my career working for systems integrators in the publishing and creative arts space. I then built and ran a very profitable web development software company, delivering great products and consulting for several major clients including Adobe Systems.
For the last few years, I've specialised in mobile development, but have a proven track record in desktop and web development, with skills including custom UIs/graphics/animation implementation, audio processing and networking through to low-level tasks such as encryption and reverse-engineering.
I have worked with a wide range of technologies but currently specialise in Apple iOS/macOS and related platforms.
I joined the Art Processors team in April 2021 and have been involved in several exciting creative projects in the GLAM sector, including a major role as Tech Lead, driving the interactive Audio Guide project for the newly opened Bob Dylan Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I have since been promoted to Lead Mobile Engineer and now manage a small team of mobile developers working on several platforms.
Prior to my current role, I built a strong and growing team at ResApp Health to utilise DSP and machine learning technology on smartphones to diagnose respiratory disease. ResApp has since been acquired by Pfizer.
At ResApp, I was responsible for building and running the technology team including R&D, algorithm and app development as well as server-side technologies, cybersecurity infrastructure and the technical side of regulatory compliance.
I built software for ResApp's large clinical studies both in Australia and in multiple hospitals in the US and worked with the regulatory team to get products cleared as medical devices. I oversaw the delivery of multiple medical device apps through the regulatory process and to the Apple App Store and Google Play store.
I have presented at various local user groups and have contributed chapters to several technical books.
I have dual UK/Australian citizenship.
As VP of Software Engineering I built a great team at ResApp, with developers working on DSP, machine learning and app development as well as supporting engineers.
I managed the delivery of apps and supporting technology for several large clinical studies both in Australia and the US.
Responsible for the technical architecture and implementation of ResApp's iOS applications and related server-side technologies.
At Hydric Media I built music-related apps for some of the world's leading music labels, brands and companies.
At Skedulo, I was responsible for the architecture and engineering of the native mobile apps for their innovative Salesforce-backed remote workforce scheduling solution.
At Oomph we built the world's number one rich media content delivery platform for mobile devices. Oomph powers more than 450 apps on the App Store, including magazines such as Qantas Magazine, The Australian Women's Weekly and Coles Magazine and apps for companies such as Harley-Davidson, Westfield and Honda.
I worked on both the iOS codebase as well as the Mac-based content creation app.
I worked with a small team of developers across the whole stack, from the iPad and iPhone apps through to the Rails-based backend system
I worked on various iOS apps for Speedwell, including the Domino's pizza app for iPad and iPhone, as well as implementing security-related code to harden a secure document management app used by several State Cabinets, as well as the Federal Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.
Big Bang Software was my own business in which I conceived, developed and published software which sold almost 20,000 copies and generated approximately 2 million dollars in profit.
I ran Big Bang Software with my business partner for more than a decade. I implemented all of our in-house systems, including:
I was the lead developer for all software projects worked on by the company, with my business partner responsible for UI and icon design as well as marketing.
For many years, our primary product was MenuMachine, a now-defunct web development tool for creating drop-down menus. The product was extremely successful in its market niche.
At Big Bang Software, I also performed contract work for major clients such as Adobe Systems, where I built a support tool for their web authoring software Adobe GoLive. Project was completed on-time and on-budget and was distributed with the packaged retail software.
I also worked on many smaller development projects for both macOS and iOS.
