Project Portfolio

iOS Mobile Applications

I have been developing mobile applications for iOS since 2010. I have deployed multiple apps to the app store and worked on multiple client applications in both start-up and enterprise environments.

Web & Database

I have developed web applications on both open source LAMP stacks as well as Microsoft ASP.NET MVC and SQL Server stacks including schema design, query optimization, and stored procedures.


I have excellent communication skills and experience working directly with clients to gather requirements, estimate effort, and assist in creating the best user experience possible.

Blur Box

Create beautiful square photos that are perfect for things like Instagram. There's no need to remove people or crop away any part of your great shots. Choose from light or dark blurred letterboxing that extends the photo and all of its colors.

Pocket Scale

Pocket Scale is a super quick and easy weight tracker app. Simply tap the main circle, slide over to your weight, then press the circle again to save it and you are done! Pocket Scale will take care of the rest. You can also view your BMI, total weight lost or gained, and your history to see your progress.

Pocket Scale can now sync your weight data with Apple's Health app. With Health you will be able to view all of your weight data in a beautiful graph. Every time you enter a weight into Pocket Scale it will automatically be synced over to Health. When you delete or change a weight entry in Pocket Scale that will also be automatically updated in Health.
