In a nutshell, I am an information systems concierge, a solutions architect, and full-stack developer. I have over 20 years in application development and have had the opportunity to specialize in a number of technical areas that compliment eachother. From project pitch to publishing, from market research to SEO, from user interface to data architecture, I have had the fortune of being able to get my hands dirty with all levels of development. I love the challenge of new tech and have been particularly excited about the mobile revolution that continues to grow. This site is my way of putting all the stuff I enjoy under one roof.
My current loves though are data and mobile programming using iOS Swift.
I am not great at graphic design though. I can draw stick figures. Thankfully I know talented folks that can make everything I do look pretty.
I am also a dad, husband, culinary enthusiast, zen kayaker, hobby photographer, bass guitar strummer, and a mobile app junkie.
We left off getting all of the Class and Framework data into a database table and the next challenge is getting some numbers out of the APIs.
