Oval-framed 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 not a bad place to live, but I miss the tropics. Here's hoping for the day when an island nation breaks into the tech industry in a big way...

In my professional life I work on VR headsets for Oculus, most recently the Oculus Go and the upcoming Oculus Quest. Previously I helped launch the Amazon FirePhone and AWS' IoT platform. Before that I studied Computer Science and Philosophy at a little liberal arts college called Suffolk, over in downtown Boston.

In my spare time I'm an aspiring indie game developer, a fierce #rustlang evangelist, and a small-scale philanthropist.
