Let's create an experience that generates results and your customers will love

Creative Direction & Product Management

I’ve led teams of designers, project managers, and developers across startups, agencies, broadcasters, and large corporations.

I can help you build products that are engaging, visually compelling and that convert leads into passionate customers. I can also work with your team to deliver profitable & sustainable outcomes.

Design & Development

As an entrepreneur working in pioneering technologies, I believe it’s important to be fluent in the tools needed to create engaging content and immersive experiences. To this end, I can provide 2D, 3D, Motion, and Spatial design for any screen format.

I’m passionate about no-code solutions, software automation, and online design tools that can be quickly deployed to growth-hack ideas into new digital products and experiences.

Futurist & Consultant

One of my core strengths is helping people understand the benefits (and managed risks) of embracing new and emerging technologies. 

As an entrepreneur and founder I enjoy sharing the knowledge gained from starting and growing businesses. I can work with your organisation to realise the potential opportunities and practical application of today's (and tomorrow's) technology.

Deliver immersive experiences for the metaverse

As the founder and former CEO of spatial computing agency Start Beyond, I've helped businesses deliver over 200+ immersive experiences in VR & AR.

I can help you leverage VR, AR, AI and Web3 technologies to deliver immersive brand experiences, boost productivity, engage customers or build entirely new business models for the metaverse.

End-to-end digital solutions for any platform


From landing pages, marketing websites and social media to e-commerce stores, mobile apps and dynamic data-driven websites, I can help you with everything you need to secure new customers and grow your business.


Deliver comprehensive software as a service experiences to your customers with dashboards, databases, customer acquisition, and workflow automation tools.

Nice things people have said about working with me

Kain is one of those rare breeds that can not only think creatively, be strategic and appreciate the commercial but also has the technical knowledge to bring all of it to life. 

I would highly recommend Kain to anyone looking for someone who can understand their business 5 minutes and start adding value within 10.

Steve Fanale

Drive Yello

Kain is one of the most supportive CEO's I've ever had the pleasure of working for. His approachability makes him someone to take any problem to. 

The culture that he helps to foster and maintain is amazing and he makes it a great place to work.

Karel Terra

Start VR

Kain has a unique ability to anticipate, understand and explain technology trends before they hit the mainstream. 

His insights into human behaviour and technology adoption allow him to create products and experiences in cutting edge technologies which are user friendly and consumer ready.

Daniel Barrins

Nightingale Partners

Kain demonstrates a high degree of business acumen, professional skills, and most importantly integrity in building and maintaining relationships. His ability to synthesise technology and customer needs is evident in all he does. 

Nick Gonios


Kain has the whole package - digital smarts; strategic thinking; creative insight and the ability manage a team and lead through charisma and knowledge.
Kain makes it possible for anyone to 'get' digital; he converts the skeptics, the techno-phobic and all those who sit in the 'too-hard' basket, like me.

Kara McLeod


"Quirky, unpredictable and earthy" pretty much sums up my experience of working with Kain.

He’s a cocktail that consists of: one part professional, one part creative and one part nutter - who can obviously switch between left and right hemispheres with complete ease.
