The Team

Backgammon Buddy is made with love by the following people:

Crispin Wellington

Founder & Developer

Crispin is a Software Developer living in Perth, Western Australia. Passionate about accessibility, Crispin created Backgammon Buddy so that new and experienced backgammon players can play the game instantly, for free, on any device, without needing to download anything, create an account, or log-in.

Crispin has been programming since he was 8 years old, when he and his brother received a TI-99/4A home computer for Christmas. He became hooked on game development and over the years has created at least a dozen different games. After having learnt numerous programming languages, he fell in love with Clojure and developed an open source devops tool, Spire.

In his professional life, Crispin has worked in various roles: from network administration to team management, software consulting and senior developer roles.

When he is not programming computers or improving Backgammon Buddy, Crispin can be found working on home improvement projects and spending time with his wife Kaz and their 3 children.
