I am an independent/contract iOS Developer with extensive experience making polished UI/UX, client/server interaction, audio/video, location services, push communication, Autolayout, and others. I've done past work at Shazam, Cuddlr, Somo, Traces.io, University of Cambridge Centre for Music & Science, Northwestern University and Columbia College Chicago. I take creative innovation and user experience very seriously, and enjoy working with clients to refine, clarify and enhance their dreams and goals, and then make them become a reality.

My personal apps and other projects have received accolades and are consistently rated highly by users; my past work for Shazam and others has been ecstatically received on social media and enjoyed by over 250 million people globally.

Originally from the USA, I am now based in the United Kingdom and work remotely for clients across the globe. I can provide software development services anywhere in the world, either remotely or in person.

Does your project also involve Android or web? Do you need a server back-end built, provisioned, tested, and deployed? Do you need design or UX work? I have a network of amazing colleagues who I regularly work with. Whatever the specific needs of your project, I can put together a team of expert developers and creatives to knock it out of the park. Get in touch, we'll talk through what you want to achieve, I'll prepare a timeline and estimate (or, in some cases, fixed bid) and I'll manage the whole project end-to-end.
Services I can source for your project include Android, PHP, Node, C#, Windows phone, .NET, Ruby, Python, Javascript, Java, project management, copywriting, UI/UX design, interaction design, testing, custom hardware design & building, custom 3D printed elements, and much more. If you need it, chances are someone in my network has that skill.
