Who Am I?

I'm a passionate, dedicated web developer/architect. I'm an Australian living in Tokyo, Japan. Much of my time is spent with the global community around PHP and CakePHP, attending conferences, speaking at events and being somewhat of a developer advocate for CakePHP.

I work at Rakuten, Inc. in Tokyo, Japan. I'm working on building and supporting a Platform as a Service as well as evangelising and supporting PHP.

My spare time is consumed by learning new languages, techniques, and building side projects that will one day make me a billionaire. When I'm not hacking on something, I'm thinking about it.


Most of my interests are around development, which you can see form my projects page. These are the rest:

  • Game Development and Gaming
  • Music - I play guitar, bass, and a little piano
  • Travel
