While I'm working on things I learn things. Sometimes I even blog about things.

My name is Michael Forrest and I've been programming since 1986. I have been professionally creating and shipping software on all the best platforms for over 20 years. After assembling a new Rich Internet Application Development team at the global agency LBi Digitas I joined the Ubuntu Design Team. Following this I went from being Tech Director at Critical Mass to creating my own consultancy and app-shop Good To Hear working with corporates including Atkins Global, Barclays and RSA Insurance, a number of startups including Hotel Tonight, MUBI and Emoticast, as well as releasing my own smaller but award-nominated apps like Happiness and Good Habits. I also make music and stuff.
