A forward thinker with strong troubleshooting and logic skills. I thrive in a fast paced, dynamic environment while maintaining a level head and producing excellent work. I see projects through with effective time management. I have 5 years of professional experience with iOS development as well as 4 years experience within a startup environment. Additionally, I’ve spent 3 years building a personal brand around sharing technical knowledge for others to learn from my experience. Self development is important to me so I use new projects and products as an opportunity to polish my skills while learning new technologies and practices.
