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.
Prior to embarking on the entrepreneurial and creative endeavours above, I practiced commercial and corporate law at TressCox Lawyers in Melbourne.
"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."
— Justin Harris, Beehive
