Hello! I’m Boston, a full-stack web developer and designer and raised in Toronto.
From a young age I developed a hacker mentality and love for building things. I started out my career in gaming as an artist for companies including Koei and XMG Games but my interests soon after shifted to web development as the platform matured.
For about ten years after I built websites and apps for startups and local businesses as a freelance consultant. Later, I transitioned away from freelancing to work full-time with startups including Mix Space and Iotum to be more closely involved with a team and building a single product.
Currently, I’m a Senior Software Engineer at Instacart where we’re building the future of grocery delivery.
Food, travel, gaming, and investing are a few of my favourite things outside of software engineering. In the short Toronto summers I spend as much time as possible outdoors; in the backyard slow cooking southern BBQ with friends, cycling, and taking day trips around the region. In the colder months I’m hibernating with Netflix and Steam, trying new Toronto restaurants, dabbling in cryptocurrency, or planning my next adventure.
