Who Am I?

I'm a full-stack software developer

I've built frontend, backend and mobile solutions for clients around the world.



I develop all sorts of software solutions. You should hire me to build interesting things!

Over the last decade I’ve written software for organizations ranging from early-stage startups like SafariDesk, eRoom or SmartCare to medium-sized businesses like Blueprint Data, Tangent, or Westpac Bank all the way up to giants like Google, NASA, InfoSys and the Chinese aerospace industry leader COMAC.

I’ve developed everything from high-performance big-data systems to complex web applications to 3D rendering engines. And if you play many cross-platform or independent games on Android, you’re most likely using code I’ve worked on.

Once I demonstrated some of my work to former Google CEO Eric Schmidt − who said "Hey, you should make a lot of money with that!". We haven't yet, but it's a fun ride anyway.

"[Pauls project] ClusterGL is an innovative solution...this technique shows the most promise"

From 2008 to late 2011, I was a PhD researcher at the University of Waikato in New Zealand, as part of the WAND Network Research group. I worked primarily in embedded and distributed systems, though I also worked on a number of more user-visible side projects. From 2004−2008 I completed my BCMS specialising in Software Development, graduating with first class honors.

In January 2012 I began travelling around the world, living and working in several countries in Asia and Africa. While living in Seychelles I helped start eRoom, a hotel guest tablet solution and SeyTrax, a GPS vehicle tracking service.

In 2013 I found myself in Nairobi, Kenya where I co-founded SafariDesk, an online travel startup for the emerging East African region. Initial funding for SafariDesk came from the Savannah Fund startup accelerator.

In mid 2013 I returned to Asia. While in Shanghai, I helped build Oorkle, a service to help coordinate worldwide IP Law events. I'm continuing to build software for startups and larger clients all over the world. Got a project you want built? Contact me!

What can I do?

I'm a full-stack developer − so I can build software from low-level server systems to complex user-facing systems. Contact me and we'll figure out what's right for you.

Frontend

I can build the user-facing part of your website, from scratch or integrating and customizing a pre-existing design.

Backend

I can build the server-side systems that make your web or mobile application tick, using industry-standard technologies.

Mobile

Need a mobile or tablet app? I can build cross-platform applications based on native or web technology.

Server-side

I've built several high-performance big-data server systems for clients like Blueprint and InfoSys.
