I am a world-class software developer living in New York's East Village. The last five years of my life have been focused on iOS development, but I dabble. I have two cats, and when I'm not contributing in open source, I like to write books and make photos.
Community is incredibly important to me; I've only been able to accomplish what I have because of the kindness and generosity of others. I owe it to the people who helped me to help others now. I want to lead by example and become the kind of developer that I would want to work with. That means sharing knowledge, code, and time with others. To that end, I've been working toward becoming Open Source by Default in all aspects of my life.
Over my career, I've been fortunate to work at some amazing places.
After learning the importance of design at 500px, I moved to Teehan+Lax – Canada's leading design agency – to learn more. I developed keen collaboration skills while working closely with designers and clients to realize outstanding products.
500px is a site that aims to host the world's best photography. Like flickr, but only for your best shots. I developed their first iPad app, and later led the iOS team to ship the new universal app.
