Grab a coffee ☕️

I'm a software development manager, design thinker, dog father, coffee snob, LEGO enthusiast, and fantasy Survivor player.

I work as a Development Manager at Shopify where I lead teams building powerful, performant, and inclusive experiences for developers. Learn more (and see my work in the wild) at shopify.com/partners.

Previously, I founded Low Tide Consulting - where I had the pleasure of working with clients including The Globe and Mail, Vote Compass (Vox Pop Labs), and some of my favourite Canadian startups. For more on my work history, have a look at my LinkedIn profile.

I present regularly on UX Development and Design Thinking, and taught hundreds of students at Lighthouse Labs from 2016 through 2020.

I am active on twitter and instagram but can most reliably be reached by email at mlaws@hey.com.
