Picture of man with beard and long hair wearing grey shirt, smiling in front of tropical foliage

Hi, my name is Tristam. I'm a British/Caribbean expat living in Seattle. It's a nice place to live, but I do miss the tropics. Here's hoping for the day when an island nation breaks into the tech industry in a big way...

I recently helped found the Oculus for Business team, after working on the operating system for the Oculus Go and Quest. Previously I worked on the OS and graphics engine for the Amazon FirePhone, and launched and scaled up the AWS' Internet of Things platform. Before that I obtained my Masters degree in Computer Science, plus a Bacherlors in Philosophy, at a little liberal arts college in downtown Boston.

In my spare time I'm a graphics programmer, a fierce #rustlang evangelist, and a small-scale philanthropist.
