Previously

Twitter

I joined Twitter in 2014 as an iOS developer. During my time, I built new profile and "verified" user features for the Twitter iOS app (i.e. Pinned Tweets). In addition to iOS work, I also developed Twitter's backend services.

Twitter acquired a startup called Niche early 2015. I shortly joined the Niche effort and helped lead the team to launch their mobile iOS app.

Amazon

I moved to Seattle, Washington in 2012 to develop software at the retail giant. I joined the the Desktop team on Amazon Cloud Drive and developed Amazon's consumer cloud product. Our team developed Mac OSX and Windows desktop sync clients using Cocoa and .NET. I also led the team's agile development process as the team scrum master.

Apple

During college, I interned at Apple's Consumer Engineering department. I built an internal Mac OSX application, which analyzed and verified slide shows on iPhoto. The app automated the testing process, generated detailed reports, and published the results to an web frontend.
