I am a software engineer and hobbyist designer living in Victoria, BC Canada. I specialize in iOS / Mac and Ruby on Rails. I run a small consulting shop and help companies with their mobile or web needs.

Previously I worked at Pose in California. I was the lead software engineer on both the iOS and Ruby on Rails teams and helped to grow the company to over 3 million users. Our mobile application has been featured by Apple many times as "App of the Week", "Best New App", and even "App Store Best of the Year".

I grew up in Canada and was born in Whitehorse, Yukon then moved to Waterloo, Ontario for a degree in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo. After finishing my degree, I started a software consulting business NeverBored Studios with some fellow graduates and specialized in Ruby and iOS contract work for a few years before moving to California. We launched a number of different iPhone, iPad and Mac apps and made numerous open source contributions.

Some of the technologies I love to use are:

  • Swift and Objective-C for Mac or iOS
  • Ruby with Rails, Slim, Sass, Bourbon, Neat, and RSpec
  • TypeScript and JavaScript with Angular, React, Vue, and Webpack
  • Sketch, Photoshop, and Illustrator

I have also had the chance to volunteered for a few not for profits doing design and development work:

  • Yukon River Trail Marathon
  • Kluane Chilkat International Bike Relay
  • KW Synchronized Swimming Club
  • Canada Winter Games

When I am not coding, I enjoy reading, cooking, biking, hiking, and snowboarding.
