ABOUT ME
I currently consider myself a full-stack developer. Originally an electrical engineer, I transitioned from hacking hardware to hacking software once I fell in love with writing Perl scripts to automate company processes in a major Japanese company. Once I knew I loved building things with software, I taught myself iOS programming on the side and neverl ooked back. iOS developer since the 2.0 SDK. In my last startup, I built an iOS app and corresponding Django site, and also had to dabble in DevOps to safely & reliably automate deployments of updates to both the app and server code--all hosted on AWS.

I started iOS development in my free time, reading books, and eventually using the game framework Cocos2D to create a simple game app for myself. I then moved onto assisting HoodHot Travel with the development of their Taxi Guides, apps that have over 50k downloads and $xx,000 in revenue. Later, I consulted for brands such as Macy's, William Grant & Sons, Aveda, and more--creating enterprise iPhone and iPad apps for their portfolios or exhibits. In my last startup, I also built a mobile web app using Sencha Touch 2, that deployed to both iOS and Android, and the mobile web browsers. Recently, I've been tackling Swift in a side project, enjoying hacking in the new efficient and terse language.
