CEO, Creator, Daddy

Hi, my name is Leo. I am a creator of tech products & businesses.

I am best known for my work on ArtStation, a leading showcase platform for artists & designers. I also serve on the board of the Ottawa Mission, a homeless shelter in Canada’s capital city. I am regarded as a polymath, having deep expertise in technology, business and creative work.

Currently I am one of three partners at Ballistiq Digital (the parent company of ArtStation), a software development company I co-founded with Clarence Martens & Kevin Strike. Ballistiq clients have included Autodesk, Riot Games, Pixar, NVIDIA, Gnomon School, Cgarchitect and others.

I’m also an angel investor (via Ballistiq) and am involved in tech startups.

I’ve held management positions at Autodesk & Softimage, and was the Founder of CGSociety, which I exited in 2006.
