I have been working in the Shopify Partnerships team since 2012. Today I focus on Partner Education and Community which involves everything from webinars and tutorials to meetups and events. You can find my full professional history on Linkedin.
In addition to my work at Shopify I co-host the irregular, and irreverant, Back to Front Show podcast with my good friend Kieran Masterton. After a year-long hiatus, we returned in January 2016 with the “difficult” 39th episode. It’s good to be back.
In November 2015, I launched an email newsletter called Byte Size Bites aimed at digital workers. Each issue I share interesting articles I have enjoyed as well as featuring books, gear, and music recommendations. Topics covered include ecommerce, the web industry, podcasting, music, film, magazines, apps, gear, publishing, travel, remote working and more. You can subscribe here.
2011–2014 — For three years I worked on a number of projects with Elliot Jay Stocks under the banner of Viewport Industries. This included "Insites: The Book" — A 256 page book of interviews with 21 web and tech visionaries. All print copies sold out you can download the digital versions (epub, PDF — 75mb ZIP) for free. Additionally we ran numerous workshops, published Digest — a one off lifestyle large format magazine, and hosted Insites: The Tour — a four cities in four days tour chatting with interesting web folk about how they got started.
2011–2012 — During this period I was also honoured to work with the amazing team at Smashing Magazine on their Coding section. I helped curate and edit the articles that appear weekly and have been privileged to work with amazing writers at the forefront of the web industry.
Prior to moving to the West Country from London in 2008, I worked at a small web development agency with a focus on large scale data driven web applications as well as undertaking a variety of freelance projects. Pre 2004 I held a number of mostly web related positions in the NHS (National Health Service) in East London, UK.
Before the internet was even a thing I worked at the Royal Albert Hall in the box office. I have many funny tales from this era, feel free to quiz me if we meet.
