Desigan Chinniah is an enthusiastic, sociable, self-motivated and highly experienced web professional with his finger on the pulse of technology.

A self-confessed geek, Dees lives in London with wife, Sanne and their kids, Summer & Kiran.

Dees is a Firestarter at Mozilla, the makers of Firefox — innovating, experimenting and engaging with their global community. Presently he is actively involved with Firefox OS, an open source HTML5 based mobile operating system.

He has worked within web circles as a Designer, Developer & Product Manager for over 8 years, including stints at Ask Jeeves, Skype, BBC World Service, eBay, PayPal X and Gumtree.

Dees evolves within a magical world of VoIP calls, IRC and cross-Atlantic flights — while silently working his way through as many indie coffee shops as humanly possible.

When he's not geeking out, he can be found sporting, snapping pictures or entertaining the kids, but not at the same time.
