About Me

  • I was an awesome tax accountant, then I found my true passion -- writing code.

    I am a total Apple fangirl and I want other Apple users to enjoy apps that I build.

    Native iOS apps are my thing, and Objective-C is my weapon of choice.


    I'm always striving to keep-up with the latest iOS SDK versions.


    I've implemented open-source frameworks and integrated apps with 3rd party APIs and web services. (foursquare, google maps, amazon s3, localytics, ...)


    If you're looking for an enthusiastic iOS developer to join your team, lets chat :)
