Objective-C Engineer

I have been creating applications for OS X since the Xcode 1.0 release in 2003 and iOS since the SDK release in 2008.  Below are some of the products that I have been involved with for OS X and iOS.

Skitch 1.0 (OS X) - Popular image capture and annotation tool, acquired by Evernote in 2011

Memeo Connect Reader (iOS) - Google Docs client designed for the iPad launch in 2010

Memeo Send (OS X) - Send large files up to 16gb from a native OS X application

NovaMind (OS X) - The original mind mapping application for OS X

 

Multi-Platform Product Manager

I have had an increasing focus on Product Management since my 2009 graduation from a Bachelor of Business in Management of Information Technology.  Having strong foundations in both business and engineering disciplines often gives me a unique perspective on the product creation process.  Below are the 2 main products I lead as Director of Product Management at Memeo Inc.

Sony PlayMemories Online (iOS, Android, Web) - Sony's personal video and picture sharing service, part of the Sony Entertainment Network

Memeo C1 (iOS, Android, OS X, Windows, Web) - Secure alternative to Dropbox for Small Business & Enterprise, acquired by Unicom Systems in 2014

 

Other Interests

Ruby on Rails - Great prototyping tool when you just can't wait for a server dev in order to start messing around with that new idea you just have to try

Bluetooth LE - Linking hardware to iOS has never been so... easy?  No that's not the right word.  Possible.  Linking hardware to iOS has never been so possible.

Arduino - My hardware prototyping platform of choice
