Freelance Mobile Engineer
Location: Denver, CO
I'm a mobile software engineer who strives to push the boundaries of user interaction and design. I've always been fascinated by the emotional connection a user makes with a device, which has lead to an ambition to build the most beautiful and engaging UIs for mobile devices and embedded systems.
I currently work under a mobile-focused freelance collective called Brothers (http://brothe.rs) and also as a senior iOS developer for Sureify. I've personally worked with and contributed to the following clients and projects:
Expedia, T-Mobile, Atkins, Sureify, Zapd, Banyan Branch, PlayerMarks, Explore.FM, Radius, Modern Tribe (Shane & Peter), University of Chicago, Penn State University, Northwestern University, Music Institute of Chicago, South Dakota State University, University of Idaho
I built and maintained Glue for iPhone. It was featured on the home page of the app store under the "New and Noteworthy" section, it also appeared in the "Top Free" section of the Productivity category.
Lead Software Engineer
As the lead developer for a small company, I learned what it takes to drive a team of people and coordinate the efforts between design and development. I was also actively involved in the UX phase of most projects.
Eye9 Design closed for business January 2009.

New Media Denver
I worked as a developer building PHP/HTML/CSS websites for an array of industries. The primary project I was assigned to was a Drupal implementation for the University of Colorado.
September 2007 - January 2008
Throughout high school I worked as a freelancer for local companies and many recognized bands and record labels. I focused on Flash/PHP driven websites/e-cards. I also spent many afternoons at the local web hosting company Modwest, where I learned a lot about server architectures and programming in general.

Rock Canyon High School
High School Diploma
I graduated with a 3.4 GPA. The independent studies I had at my previous school transferred to Rock Canyon. In addition to the school work, programming, and running a freelance business, I was on the varsity basketball team and was awarded second-team all-conference.
Sentinel High School
Many of the electives did not satisfy my interests, so with help from my counselors I was given two independent studies to focus on software development. I was also on the basketball and football teams.
