Hello. I'm an iOS developer from Brooklyn, NY and currently employed as a Senior iOS Developer at the New York Times. Previously, I was a freelance developer. Below are a few of the projects that I worked on. When I'm not building iOS apps, I might be digging for old jazz records, cooking, or taking photographs (often of food and vinyl). Take a look at my photos, my record collection, my professional history, or just get in touch.
