Mobile
My main specialty is mobile applications for Android in Kotlin. I recently started learning iOS development with Swift.
Web
Like this website. I prefer classic HTML, CSS, and JavaScript with frameworks like jQuery.
Backend
Node.js & Express, and more recently Kotlin & Ktor! Some SQL DB admin, too.

Introduction

My main focuses include mobile application development for the Android platform, along with frontend and backend web development. I also recently started getting back into iOS development, which I had done a bit in the past for work.

I currently work as a Senior Android Engineer at Square in San Francisco. We're known for more than just the card readers that connect to your phone, we also have custom in-house hardware such as Square Register and Square Terminal.

My non-professional interests include motorcycling & cars, snowboarding, and music & drums. I currently ride a 2020 Street Triple RS 765, and I drive 2020 Tesla Model 3. When it comes to music, I have a large range of genre preferences, from French electro-pop like The Sunday Sadness to post hardcore like Dance Gavin Dance, and many things in between.
