When my first iOS app (a guitar teaching tool) landed in the top 25 of the App Store, I got hooked on product development. 10 years later, I've created a number of apps, worked on large-scale data platforms, led multinational product and engineering teams, spoken at conferences, and everything in between.
Originally from Florida, I moved to the Bay Area after college and now reside in the suburbs of Philadelphia with my fiancée and our dog Kalu. You'll find us snowboarding in the winter months and golfing through the summer. Outside of my day job, I enjoy building personal projects and taking them to market.
2006 - 2010
Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science
Servo Software [San Mateo, California]
After selling my app (iShareTunes) to Servo, I joined the company full-time. Within a year, Servo was acquired and merged with another company to form Kii Corporation.
Kii Corporation [Tokyo, Japan]
2010 - Current
I continued to work with Kii Corporation to advance my development and product skills, work with remote teams, and grow into several other roles.
2010 - 2014
I teamed up with a designer to create iOS apps in our spare time. We released several Social and Utility apps, ranging in success from thousands to 1M+ downloads.
2011 - 2012
KeepSafe is a mobile app created as a side project within Kii. After amassing millions of users in a short time, we decided to raise external funding and spin it out into its own company. KeepSafe has since grown to over 60M users.

A simple and elegant list app with a focus on sharing. When my favorite list app went defunct, I wasn't able to find another one that worked for both my fiancée and me. If you can't find it, build it!
