Cameron Burgess is a Canadian practicing various forms of computer related design—principally concerned with authoring environments.

This summer, he will be a design intern at Apple, working on the Shortcuts authoring environment for iOS.

He currently lives in Pittsburgh and is a student at the Carnegie Mellon School of Design and Human-Computer Interaction Institute. He can also be found at the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry from time-to-time.

Previously, he studied at KAIST Industrial Design and interned at the Dubberly Design Office, Samsung Research America’s Think Tank Team, and Asana.

In 1997, he was born in White Rock, British Columbia; there he learned to use the computer, make things out of lego bricks, and tell stories with moving pixels. Later, he attended the Halton Waldorf School, which he didn’t love at the time, but is now eternally grateful for.
