I develop software products and communicate brands for startups and businesses. I am originally from Melbourne Australia, lived in Sydney for several years and am now moving around the world experiencing other cultures and life.
I consult to startups and businesses using technologies including Node.js, React, Swift, Python and PostgreSQL. I have produced or executive produced nearly 50 fashion films and short film brand stories for fashion and lifestyle brands. I created the first ever fashion film festival in Australia in association with Melbourne Fashion Festival. I produced the Australian fashion films for the International Woolmark Prize presented by Vogue. I also created the first street style blog in Australia. I encourage you to view my project highlights here and my consulting company here.
I have been teaching myself business and computer science since 2010. I take notes of books or topics I wish to understand and apply the lessons by building applications and running businesses. I publish my notes on this site as a convenient way for me to access what I am learning and as a resource for anyone else to use.
"Alastair has been an absolute asset to our project. His quality of work, professional communication and attention to detail has made it a pleasure to work with him. I would recommend anyone who wants their project done right to speak with Alastair."
— Todd Helsin, MooBaa
"Alastair is very easy-going and a pleasure to work with. He took mediocre (at best) requirements and a lazy product manager and was able to complete everything ahead of schedule with a high quality of code. I will hire him again."
— Jeremy Moore, OpenABridge.com
"Alastair is a top notch developer. Not only does he communicate to ensure us of his progress, he delivers his work on time. I would use his services again in the future and would recommend anyone use him to ensure your project is done right."
