I was born in St. Paul, MN. I'm 100% self-taught, I started studying programming languages when I was a kid. I've done a lot of work with open source libraries (mainly publishing my own), though I drifted from that a bit as I've gone further into my career.
I'm into bicyclying, motorcycling & cars, snowboarding, and playing the drums. I currently ride a 2020 Street Triple RS 765, and I drive 2021 Tesla Model 3 Performance 🏍 When it comes to music, I love many different types, from rock & metal to electronic & K-Pop! 🤘
Working with mobile, backend, and AI for Square Messages. Got promoted while on this team from a senior L5 to a staff L6.
Built the new Point of Sale checkout experience.
Worked on the software that runs on Square Register and Terminal, helping to bring them to market.
I worked on flagship app before and after it was merged with Cartwheel. Also developed Mobile Wallet, and other cool features.
I did both a mobile (Android + iOS) and backend (ASP.NET). SkillFitness started out for sales professionals, but expanded to other places (like teaching spoken languages in the classroom).
I brought SkillFitness into the world of Android.
I developed Android and iOS mobile applications using Java and Objective-C. This was my first step into using my skills professionally, as an intern.
