Biography

I love working where technology meets design, and that's why I build iOS apps. I'm a Co-Founder of Thumbworks, an iOS Design and Development company focused on helping businesses of all sizes solve problems and meet their goals while building beautiful apps. For the past 7 years I've been very excited about the future of reactive programming, as I've been working with ReactiveCocoa and RxSwift for most of my projects. I get a lot of enjoyment out of pushing declarative architectures as far as they can go. Naturally I'm very happy with the advent of SwiftUI and the Combine API, and will be aggressively learning those for the next generation of apps. I have a background in multimedia and design, and bring an eye for user experience and usability to the table. It's great to use analytics to improve your app, but I think it always needs to be done with user friendliness in mind. At the end of the day, I think even utilitarian apps should be a joy to use. I'm interested in creating experiences that improve people's lives, whether it's a well designed interface for an end user, or a clean and obvious API for other developers.
