    United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

    I have been developing mobile applications since 2009 and have delivered over 30 applications to clients across the globe. With a Bachelor's in Computer Science and 6 years of mobile experience, I am an expert mobile developer & consultant. I can detect red flags in your design and help you modify them to be more mobile-friendly and cost-effective. I have created boutique applications for PepsiCo, Maroon 5, EMC, Stella McCartney among other high end, fortune 500 brands. I am based in San Francisco and have worked remotely with clients and startups across the globe. The applications I create are guaranteed to be polished, on time, and cost-efficient. Different clients have different needs; sometimes people are as different as the apps we create. That's why I custom cater my development process to fit your needs. Whether it be timesheets, code samples, SCRUM meetings, or a weekly Skype chat with your boss, I will manage the project in the way that makes you most comfortable. Communication is key, and I pride myself in creating strong, collaborative relationships with my clients.
