Hey, I’m Rob. I try to design & build software that helps people thrive.
This website is a place where I share ideas, books, what I’m working on and everything in between. If you enjoy anything in particular, be sure to send me a DM on twitter.
Me in 14 Seconds
I live in Ottawa and work full-time as a software entrepreneur. I love everything to do with technology, product design and helping others succeed. I’ve been in the game for about 20 years now and my first few startups were garbage fires BUT I’ve always kept learning and growing. I have endless stories and experiences to share.
I am fascinated with team dynamics and building systems that help move people and companies forward. I get fired up thinking about — the creator economy, open source software, interface design, sports/athletics, writing, having a growth mindset and health/nutrition/movement/diet, meditation/yoga and, living a balanced life.
What’s On This Website
I believe writing is the best way to learn something. I also believe that sharing the work we do everyday can provide tremendous value to others. So I seek to share my experiences by learning in public as often as I can.
I share notes and thoughts on the books I’m reading in my book notes (currently being updated) section. Some of my favorite things from across the internet are in my links section. And my essays span a plethora of things that fire me up that I wanted to share with others.
This website is a great way for me to share what’s on my mind and things I’m working on (without all the noise). I enjoy mentoring young entrepreneurs, building, advising and occasionally investing in early-stage software companies.
