I'm a San Francisco-based software developer at Lightspun, a custom web and mobile app development shop. We focus on Ruby on Rails and iOS.

Over the years I've worked in C, C++, Java, Javascript, Ruby, and Objective-C, creating software for the web, MacOS, iOS, Android and WebOS for companies including Urban Dictionary, NASDAQ Private Market, NeedFeed, Pivotal Labs, and MacXperts. You can see the details on LinkedIn.

I'm working on another iOS app, this time using RubyMotion. I've also just started working on a website for software developers. Stay tuned.


Recent Side Projects

Helpname.it is a simple site for getting help coming up with names for things. It's a pretty basic Rails / HAML / SASS / CoffeeScript / Bootstrap / Heroku app. Visit the site or see the code.

imageproxy is an open source image manipulation proxy server written in Ruby as a Rack app. It's a great way to resize images on the fly so you don't have to manually resize them every time your UI design changes. It works quite well in production (but for high-performance applications, there are undoubtedly faster alternatives). Check it out.
