I'm a full-stack software engineer, with a focus on mobile.
My background spans a wide breath of software engineering, beginning at Isilon Systems, where we developed a highly scalable distributed filesystem built on the BSD kernel. We went public, and were eventually acquired by EMC.
At Apple, I helped build and maintain XBS, a distributed build system responsible for compiling, aggregating, and releasing binaries from the source code produced by Apple's engineering teams. On CDs once upon a time, it's now the stuff downloaded when you tap "Update".
My four years at Google began with building the back-end for a then-small project, Emerald Sea, which we eventually launched as Google+. Shifting gears, I dove into into mobile and we launched the project's much-lauded native iOS app.
During my tenure, along with a small team of iOS engineers, I developed the Google iOS Engineering Education course. This intensive immersion course was designed to ramp engineers up from zero mobile experience to capable iOS developers. The popular course became one of Google's highest-rated.
I left to join two ex-Googlers and become the iOS Lead at Secret, an anonymous social network that spawned never-before-seen content, and an entirely new social interaction mechanism. I was the sole iOS engineer for much of the company's existence, led a few launches, went through rethinks and redesigns, grew my team, and eventually left Secret a few weeks before it shut down in April 2015.
Since leaving Secret, I've travelled across Central America, Southern Africa, Europe, and Southeast Asia. I currently split my time between San Francisco and Tahoe, where I spend my days writing code and snowboarding.
