I'm a software developer with over 20 years of experience. By day I work with startups via Cogent.co, a values based Melbourne consultancy. As well as writing code in most languages, I've got a fair bit of experience in other parts of the startup journey, and regularly run product and business focused workshops for clients. I'm a member of Enspiral, a collective of originally New Zealand based social entrepreneurs, and I'm passionate about social impact, not just making money. I value diversity in tech startups, and although I'm a white cis male I'm aware of some of my own privilege and would prefer to work with people from a range of different backgrounds.
