Gareth Townsend

Caricature of Gareth Townsend, drawn by Nick Russo (

I'm a software developer from Melbourne, Australia. I grew up Vienna, Austria. People sometimes confuse the two. One day I would like to live in Europe again.

I'm currently taking time off to work on my latest startup - A newborn baby.

Previously I've worked at Clover, Ferocia, The Conversation, NZX and Clear Grain.

You can find me at many meetups in Melbourne. I used to run Melbourne Ruby and I founded the Melbourne Cocoaheads group.

Perhaps you would just prefer to stalk me on the internet. Twitter. Medium. github.
