I've worked as a full-time iOS developer for the past four years. I'm currently with a company called PatientSafe Solutions, which provides healthcare professionals a mobile-based platform for communications and task management. I am also a forum subject matter expert on the excellent RayWenderlich.com.
I have deep knowledge of Core Data, Core Location, MapKit, GCD, EAAccessory, UIKit, and many other API's. I'm well-versed in both the built-in networking API's and libraries like AFNetworking. I'm equally competent in both Swift and Obj-C. I also have a passion for best-practices and writing clean, modular, well-tested code. I love helping people learn and guiding them through sticking points--I look forward to hearing from you!
I currently work full-time for PatientSafe Solutions, which produces communication and task-management apps for healthcare professionals.
In previous roles I've built R&D apps for proprietary utility inspection hardware, a full-featured web browser, a chat app, and numerous personal projects.
Most of my programming career has been spent developing for iOS. I am well-versed in Swift, Objective-C and all of the commonly-used Cocoa Touch API's, as well as some (EAAccessory, Core Motion, et al) that are more niche.
I've used git ever since I began programming, and have made a point to learn the finer details. I prefer the fine-grained control of using it via the command line, but am also comfortable with Xcode integration and the SourceTree standalone app.
I've taken some formal database classes and learned more than I'm ever likely to need about DB design, theory, and SQL. I mostly use Core Data these days, but am still very much comfortable writing SQL statements and designing data-driven apps using SQLite.
I am very well-versed in all of the common cocoa touch API's (UIKit, Core Animation, Core Data, Core Graphics) as well as some less-used such as External Accessory. I have specialized in Apple platforms for nearly my entire career and make a point of staying abreast of all the latest developments and best practices.
I devoured the iOS e-book the same week it was released, and currently have some personal projects going in Swift. I am also a member of the update team for a leading iOS learning site, writing Swift tutorials.
