I Work at the Intersection of
Design & Development

I have enterprise, independent, start-up, and agency experience crafting web and mobile applications big and small. My first app, StatusBar+, was launched when I was in high school. Since then, I have personally shipped more than a dozen Android & KaiOS apps. My latest endeavor is PodLP, a podcast app for smart feature phones with more than ten millions downloads.

I work across the product & software development lifecycle (SDLC), from wireframing to user acceptance testing (UAT), from code reviews to trademark registration.


Regardless of scale, I strive to implement solutions that set new standards and redefine what is possible. Below is a sample of my independent work.

I have worked with many great companies and organizations, including:

Learn more about me and my work at the links below.


I architect and implement end-to-end solutions with an emphasis on usability, scalability, security, and privacy. These are some of the tools, technologies, and services that I use.

I pick tools & technologies based on product requirements, user expectations, and organizational constraints. Factors include budget, geography, availability, security, extensibility, maintainability, latency, and compliance. I learn new technologies quickly and have also worked with CDNs (CloudFront, Cloudflare), Docker (ECS, ECR, Fargate) Cloudflare (Pages & Workers), Babel, ESLint, Python, SQL (PostgreSQL, SQLite), PHP, Golang, Elixir, Kotlin, AEM, Objective-C, C#, R, JSON, XML, RPC, and more.
