Hi, I'm Paul 👋

I make computers do interesting things.

Over the last decade I’ve worked with organizations ranging from early-stage startups like EyeCandyLab, TrainingMeals or Ellie to medium-sized businesses like Carescribe, Visard, Adspert, or Screentime Labs all the way up to giants like Google, NASA, and the Chinese aerospace leader COMAC.

“Paul was great to work with. He communicated very well and was always quick to respond. He is very talented — nothing seemed too challenging for him. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of his expertise.”

A lot of the more fun stuff I've done is under NDA, but here's a few past clients I can share. Click a project for details!

As a CTO I've helped take multiple startups from idea/concept, through their seed stage and into ongoing funding. As a software developer I’ve built everything from high-performance big-data systems to complex web applications to mobile VR networking.

And if you play independent games on Android, you’re likely using code I’ve worked on.

I've got a lot of experience understanding complex business requirements and converting them to specifications other developers or implementing them myself. I thrive on ambiguity and really like being the first person working on a new greenfield project, figuring out what the business needs to implement. I'm now an independent consultant, helping build interesting things with startups and bigger companies around the world.

I'm originally from New Zealand 🥝 but after stints in Asia and Africa, nowdays I'm based in Lisbon 🇵🇹☀️🏖️.
