Dice has worked as an information architect, content strategist and writer – at Springload, Xero, and as an independent consultant. Right now he’s chuffed to be Optimal Workshop’s resident information architect. Dice is no longer a high-school teacher, although from time to time a former student will still come up and say “Hi, Mr Allardice,” which instantly ages him by at least a decade.
