A Decade of Mac + iOS Experience

I mastered Cocoa/Objective-C almost 10 years ago through passionate self-teaching and experience with a very large and professional open-source project, merely because I loved developing on this platform; Now, with the emergence of iOS, I've been lucky enough to also earn a living with this skill.

My long and extensive experience working on this platform makes for a rich understanding of framework conventions, best practices, memory management, and development tools; I'm passionate about quality and maintainability when it comes to code and application architecture.

I currently work both independently on my own projects and contractually to engineer iOS apps for high-profile clients. I contribute to open-source projects in my free time for fun.

I'm as much a designer as I am a developer, crafting every UI pixel for my work. I'm also fluent in standards-based web design.
