- Built and sold/exited a combination iOS/macOS app that utilized a custom framework for keeping the codebase 90% the same across devices (pre-Catalyst!), and found and published new ways to push CloudKit sharing past what was previously documented.
- Launched and exited a video technology startup in Japan that saw wide use in the journalism community; a personal point of pride.
- Several successful open source projects with solid followings.

Interested in roles with the chance to try and help push back against the tide of a seemingly crazy world. Particular areas of interest include data rights, privacy and user protection, encryption and so on. I enjoy making tech-centric products user-friendly.
