I’m a software engineer. I spend my days working on iOS apps and sometimes, since things are boring without other things, the web as well.
I grew up in Florida, and I received a Master’s in Computer Science from UCF (go Knights!). Now I live in San Francisco, and I’m allergic to avocados. It’s a really tough combination.
I’ve done a variety of jobs from low-level firmware to automation in hotel rooms. I’ve been doing Mac and iOS development for over a decade. You can find me on Linkedin. Here are a few of my recent gigs:
I lead iOS development at Imgur, an app for joy. from October 2015 to now
I run Prowl, a notification service and app. from June 2009 to now
I led iOS development on Freetime, a messaging app. from February to September 2015
I led iOS development at Heyday, a now-defunct journaling app. from January 2013 to January 2015
I worked on Adium, the instant messaging app. from June 2005 to January 2013
I worked on Linea, a now-defunct photo-sharing app. from December 2011 to January 2013
I have released a few useful libraries for iOS development on GitHub:
UILabel subclass powered by NSAttributedStrings which allows tapping on certain substrings/links.
Converts NSStrings into NSAttributedStrings using an HTML-like markup language without requiring HTML semantics.
UITextView subclass which displays a suffix after editable text and a placeholder
Replacement for NSFetchedResultsController. Instead of supporting a single array of objects this exposes one section per object.
