Who is Brian Gilham?
A journalist in a past life, Brian Gilham is a developer, writer, and teacher based in Toronto. By day, he's a Mobile Team Lead at TWG, doing great work for clients like FreshBooks, Wealthsimple, Shopify, and the Globe and Mail.
Never one to sit around, Brian recently released Draftly, a Dribbble client for Apple TV. He has served as technical reviewer on a book about WatchKit development and helmed a popular weekly newsletter about Apple Watch design & development. Brian also created the first icon set for Apple Watch apps and spoke on a panel organized by TWG and NSNorth. He got really into the Apple Watch, for a time.
He's released apps for managing your HockeyApp account, seeing what Torontonians think, navigating Doors Open Toronto, checking wait times at the border, scheduling location-based reminders, and making your commute a tiny bit easier.
His work has been featured in the Guardian, Gigaom, Globe & Mail, Toronto Star, CBC News, and more.
In the past, you may have encountered Brian working as a photographer, HTML-wrangler at a marketing agency, janitor, or projectionist. He was fired from Home Depot for building a fort once. It's a fun story.
