About Ash

After graduating from the University of New Brunswick, I moved to Toronto with my wife and became the first iOS developer at 500px. I worked there for a year and a half before moving on to Teehan+Lax to ship some more amazing products.

I’m a passionate person and immerse myself in whatever project I’m currently working on. I’m not happy unless I’ve got something to do, but sometimes meander through the different projects on my plate. I have a life-long obsession with learning; if I'm not learning, I'm stagnating, which means I'm moving onto to something new.

I also love to speak – get in touch if you're interested in having me give a talk somewhere. 

I've co-authored a book with Jim Dovey, written a few of my own, contribute to open source projects on GitHub, and tweet profusely.

In my spare time, I enjoy roasting my own coffee, doing a podcast with friends and one of my own, and photography.

I live in Amsterdam at the moment and would love to meet sometime. Get in touch!
