I work as a Software Solutions Architect for Ventego Creative in Wellington, New Zealand. I co-founded the company with two partners and I'm also the CTO of Zen Ex Machina, a startup in the fields of digital & user experience consultancy based out of Canberra in Australia.
Other stuff I occasionally do: Write for magazines (currently mainly Heise's iX in Germany) or in my Blog, publish a Podcast (2 Developers Down Under) with my friend Mark Mandel from Melbourne and since 2007 fly small, single-engine airplanes around New Zealand and sometimes Australia, currently working on my Commercial Pilot License.
