    Technical Architect / Native Mobile Developer

    United States - Last active: 11/21/2014

    I love mobile development. Seeing as how I keep up to date information on what's trending in the mobile space, to what new technologies are available, as well as attending conferences that are specific to mobile development, I constantly keep up to date with what's new and what the best practices are for any given time. With that said, mobile development is also my primary job. I'm currently employed as a mobile software architect, and am currently seeking additional after hours work. There is no flexibility in this, as I care about the company and it's direction, but at the same time I know how to manage my time accordingly; I'll get the job done. Given that architecting solutions means a lot of client facing time, documentation, and being obsessive-compulsive about code quality, I'll ensure that your experience with me is as top notch as it gets. From creating mobile games in 2D and 3D utilizing Unity3D, to integrating gaming experiences and gamification into native mobile applications, I've handled projects that run the gamut. I can handle development all the way from: it's conception in wireframes, to git deployment strategy, architecting the software solution, sprint based software development, to deployment to either of the major app stores. I consider myself a vertical and horizontal solution for the mobile application space. Add that to the fact that applications and websites that I've worked on in the advertising space have won design and category awards, I believe that I have what it takes to make any size application, for any size business. Maintaining live applications and deploying upgrades is also something that I am constantly tasked with. Monitoring performance, integrating bug reporting, to creating analytic schemes for a project are also a specialty of mine that I would say I'm more than proficient at.
