I was born in Sri Lanka and immigrated to Canada as a refugee when I was five. Aside from a one-year stint in Brooklyn (in the 90s, before it was trendy), I’ve spent his entire life in Toronto.
I’ve has always loved technology and was lucky enough to be surrounded by it even when I was young. I built his first website when I was eleven and used CSS for the first time when I was thirteen. It was also during this time, in high school, that people started calling me ‘Mud’.
While attending the University of Toronto, I studied Philosophy, Architecture, English and French. Freelancing during university allowed me to hone my webdev skills, which led to my first job at a small digital agency called Big Bang Technology. Shortly after Big Bang shut down, I joined The Working Group.
During my time at TWG, I had three mandates: make the Studio one of the best places in the world to work, find and keep the most talented people, and ensure the way we work continued to evolve and lead the industry.
TWG was acquired by Deloitte on March 1, 2021.
Currently, I live in Toronto with my wife, our two children, and a cat named Alpha. I wear jeans and a white shirt to work everyday.
