I'm a web developer from Montreal, Canada. I love Thai food, vintage motorcycles, and world travel. I make web apps at Mozilla, the company behind the lovely Firefox web browser. I like to hack on other things, from computers to cocktails. I'm a total motorcycle junkie and I sometimes find graphic designers cute.
I'm interested in making people's life better through technology, mostly because I don't have the patience for politics. I've worked on a lot of stuff over the years, but these are my pet projects:
Firefox OS, Web
Discover what's around
Foursquare is pretty awesome. It's chock-full of useful information for locals and foreigners alike, but there wasn't a solid web experience on mobile or the desktop. So I made one.
around is an offline-capable, fully-HTML5 web app that uses Foursquare and Open Street Maps to let you explore your surroundings in any modern web browser or on any mobile phone. It's currently in development but should be released by the end of 2013.
iOS, Firefox OS, Web
Understand the Face Value
I travel a lot. What many people from Canada and the USA don't realise is that in many parts of the world: cash is king. Frustrated with my lack of knowledge of foreign currencies' worth and ugly currency conversion apps, I created Face Value.
It's currency conversion using real denominations, so you can understand the strange pieces of paper in your pocket while you're bartering in Bangkok or surfing in Lisbon.
