British Mac & iOS developer living in Toronto, Canada. Former Chief Architect of iOS applications at Kobo, currently in charge of ePub and standards compliance for same.

I've presented at 360|MacDev and FITC Mobile, and I'm writing a book on Objective-C for Apress and on iOS/Mac Networking for Pragmatic Programmers. I developed the original AppleTV hacker's toolkit and built applications on the AppleTV platform, and I've worked with just about every major API in OS X since its initial release. In my spare time I take up occasional duty as the lead architect/lead programmer for XPlatform Consulting in Los Angeles, developing custom integration solutions for users of Final Cut Server and related products.
