About Rowan

Alright I’m Rowan. Born and bred New Zealander, I’ve spent a fair share of my adult life in Canada, now residing back in NZ.

For fun you can find me either on the sim rig, on a mountain bike, travelling with my better half, brewing all grain beer and much much more. One of my friends named me a ‘Renaissance Geek’.  Basically what happens when your curiosity level stays at 8, while everything else grows up.

For work I’m the CTO  Co-CEO of a software solutions company for the fenestration (that’s Windows and Doors – no one knows the word fenestration…) industry worldwide. . < April 2022 I just finished that and have now embarked on my dream to take my side project on full time – a SaaS product specifically for people who build awesome machines (we’re talking cars, boats, planes) to help them manage and communicate all aspects of the build and restoration process around these.  www.globalworkshop.com 

Here’s me on the morning of Day 2 of the Old Ghost Road. Just after completing the Grade 4-5 downhill switch backs from Ghost Lake Hut on my Enduro bike.

About 6 years ago I started, a 2-3 year adventure of a different sort, to get Fraser SP330 built.

Every now and then I’m found out in the bush with my other half and a camera

This is my Canyon Dude, a fat bike that challenges thinking around what a mtb tyre really should look like.
