Intro

I am the missing link. The link that connects humans to computers. My objective is to bring my unique technical, design, and life experiences to a development team in order to create the most innovative experiences the world has ever seen.

Work

Supersonic Messenger for iOS
Supersonic Messenger was an experimental voice messaging app from Google's Area 120 incubator program. Users could send ephemeral voice messages to one another, and see the transcript in real-time. In addition, the transcripts had automatic emoji substitutions added in for extra fun. The app, which was available for iOS and Android, had a successful run before being discontinued by the Area 120 program.

Android Wear for iOS
I spent about 6 months working on the Android Wear iOS app. While on the team, I focused on Bluetooth connectivity, UI, and data transfer from the wearable device to the phone.

The New Google Wallet for iOS
The new version of Google Wallet for iOS has a redesigned UI, is streamlined to focus on peer-to-peer payments, and also includes several new features. As the lead engineer, I was responsible for technical decisions and writing new features (such as the ability to transfer money from your Wallet Balance to a debit card). I spearheaded the first ever "Google Wallet for iPad" release, and built/maintained the build and test infrastructure for the team.

Google Wallet for iOS
My first position at Google was on the Google Wallet for iOS team. I worked on peer-to-peer payments and maintained code related to the "Send Money" and "Request Money" features. I also conceived and developed a new feature, "Split Charge", that allows users to request money from multiple people at the same time. In addition, I wrote the first version of "Recent/Suggested Contacts" when users send/request money.

Fueled, Inc.
Fueled is a mobile design and development agency in New York. While there, I implemented iOS projects both for clients and internally. I acted as project lead on several projects and led code reviews for junior developers.

Nymbly, Inc.
Nymbly was an iOS contracting and consulting company in Philadelphia. As the CTO and cofounder, I designed and implemented iOS and web projects, and worked directly with clients and the CEO. Projects include the Mr. Men and Little Miss Sightings and Freckleface Strawberry Monster Maker apps.

Master's Thesis
In 2012, I published my Master's Thesis at the University of Pennsylvania, Evaluation of Gesture-Based Controls for Robotic Systems.

Apple
As an intern on the Safari web browser, I designed and implemented prototypes of new features and improved existing features for future releases.

About

I'm a software engineer from Philadelphia, PA (now in Oakland, CA). I attended the University of Pennsylvania for both undergrad (2011) and Master's (2012).

I have been doing iOS (Objective-C) development since 2010, and have worked for Apple and Google, among other companies. My career focus has been about creating iOS apps, but now I am ready to enter a new chapter in my life: games. My goal is to become a game developer within the next few years and ship multiple successful games.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading about tech, astrophysics, and music. I also practice Shaolin kung fu.
