Hi. My name is Anson, and I'm based out of Toronto. I am fanatically obsessed with the intersection of music, technology, and design. These passions are what drive me build really good software - software that works so well that you don't even realize it's there - it just works.

In point form:

Software Engineering

  • React + Redux + ES6
  • AngularJS
  • Desktop Applications via Electron and Chrome Extension
  • LAMP Stack + jQuery + Responsive Web Design


  • UX + information architecture
  • Photoshop/Illustrator/Sketch
  • Visual Art / Painting


  • Comfortable advising executives on strategy (with experience as both employee and founder)
  • Always thinking deeply about the big picture, e.g. customer acquisition/churn, conversion funnel optimization, technical debt, economic forces at play, investment landscape, etc.
  • Tools I've used: Google Analytics/Adwords/DoubleClick, ExactTarget, MailChimp


  • Piano RCM level 9
  • Ableton Live
  • Melbourne Shuffle (amateur)

Why I was late for work this morning:

  • Web Audio API / Web MIDI API
  • Dribbble
  • Cyanide and Happiness
