Hello, I'm Dorian.

I am a product designer and web developer.

About Me

I am a product designer and developer with a deep affinity for startups and small businesses that move quickly. I love working in teams; being able to help things run smoother and faster and anticipating changes is what I do best. With a strong background in web development, I am not afraid to code my projects through the finish line.

My appreciation for product design comes from my desire to be helpful. So often I’ve found that people (including myself!) incorrectly guess how a person will perceive or interact with something, and I love having the research to give the voice back to the user.

Soundbox

UX / Development

Soundbox lets you share your favourite music with your friends and followers. You can create playlists and send tracks from Soundcloud, Spotify, or directly on our platform.

The MVP was built as a Chrome extension, and it later evolved into a custom WordPress theme. This passion project is long since defunct, but it still holds a special place in my heart, since it was one of the first things that I coded out.

Also...

I was a founding member of the band Austra. Between 2009 and 2018 we released three records and toured a bunch. We were fortunate enough to enjoy some acclaim, getting nominated for a Juno and a Polaris, and playing Laneway in Australia and Coachella in California.

Here's a strange shot someone took at one of our shows in Reykjavik.
