ABOUT ME

I kept dreaming of a world I thought I’d never see.

I started building computers, then websites. Soon after I was programming user interfaces and back-ends. People often sought my advice, I started consulting. Mobile piqued my interest and worked toward the chance to build some mind blowing Android features. The acquisition happened, and there was a need for some end-to-end things that needed building, and all the tooling to go with it. In this time I’ve learned I love product and usability just as much as functionality, in fact they coexist in harmony. Checkout my Portfolio, Resume, and perhaps Get In Touch with me.
