Meet the Team
Since 2013, Appreciation Engine has been built with a lot of coffee, good music, and smart brains. Meet the talented and kind people who run, design, build, cajole, laugh, guide and support AE. Hello from all of us!
I have over 20 years experience in the U.S., Canada and NZ developing technology strategies, leading development, and creating extraordinary companies as part of senior management teams.
Although I’ve worked at the enterprise level, I’m also passionate about working in start-up environments because they offer me the chance to develop technology platforms and business strategies from the ground up.
I use my skills, knowledge & leadership to develop technology that creates powerful solutions at all levels of business.
I’m a Silverstripe developer, music fan, fine wine sampler, and pug enthusiast based on a farm in Levin, New Zealand.
I’ve worked in the startup world for 10 or so years, as a content creator, community guide, and production manager, but primarily as a developer. I love the way that in the startup space no two days are the same, and that the landscape is constantly changing. Anything is possible!
After work I’m either behind the sewing machine or completely sucked into a new videogame or TV show with my cat Owen at my side.
As a Trusted Advisor, I’ve been working in Account Management and on the frontlines of Customer Support with over 12 years of experience. I’ve worked in the telecommunications and financial services industries, making this is my first foray into the technology world. As AE’s Head of Customer Success I’m collaborating with our customers, gathering feedback, data, and ideas. As the world of privacy continues to evolve, I’m looking forward to being part of a company that is ahead of the curve in privacy compliance!
In my spare time, you’ll find me outdoors with my wife and two boys, or getting healthy doses of adrenaline on my mountain bike.
