Updated my Google+ profile. It had been awhile since I signed in. They've really improved things. I'm impressed.

I know I'm disproving my own point a little, but it's a ghost town here. Google+ is a lovely tech demo.

Introduction

I am a iOS and Rails software engineermusicianwanna be designer, and burger connoisseur. I live in San Francisco with my beautiful wife.

Currently, I'm a freelancer. You can hire me. I also work on Roonin my spare time. Checkout my recent projects.

When the iPhone SDK first came out in 2008, I wrote this app called Bible that launched day one of the App Store. There are millions of people using it now, which is really humbling. I used to own a few companies, freelanced, and worked at some startups. Notably, Hipstamatic and Scribd. Recently, I sold an app I built, Cheddar, to some cool folks. Ask me about it on Twitter if you’re curious.

The best way to get to know me is to listen to part 1part 2, and part 3 of the Founders Talk about my life, Nothing Magical, making Cheddar, and what I’m doing now.

Bragging rights
Created the YouVersion Bible app (used by over 100 million people worldwide), bought a house at ago 19, sold a product, lead iOS engineering at Hipstamatic, created Cheddar & Shares, VP of Engineering at a startup.
Education
  • nowhere
    I didn't go to college. This has been a great decision. Along the way, I learned what I needed to learn or thought was interesting. Four years after high school, I was a successful professional in my field, which my peers were just starting with no real world skills.
