I'm currently a third year student studying Software Engineering at the University of Waterloo. I ❤ developing and working in Swift, and have worked on numerous projects over multiple terms in iOS, watchOS and tvOS - some of which you can find here. I have also worked in web, where AngularJS 1.x is my strongest suit, followed by some experience in React + Redux. My passion for development also goes into creating beautiful products, and if you drop me a line, I'd be happy to talk and learn about anything and everything related to product design and development. My contact information can be found at the bottom, let's talk!
While working at Carrot, I worked on their flagship iOS application, Pivot, a smoking cessation app that helps cigarette smokers quit smoking over a multi-month long program. I worked in Swift, extensively using a large range of tools in UIKit and Foundation to build lessons, lesson maps, live chat, practice quit modules, user profile modules, and other miscellaneous features. I refactored a large portion of the app's architecture to better suit the future needs of the app, allowing new lesson plans be easily integrated into the existing user experieince. I ❤ Carrot!
While working at TribalScale, I worked on numerous iOS projects (Swift, Obj-C), a tvOS project (Swift) and have also dabbled in web (React+Redux). I became essential in development in bringing apps to market, which includes the ABC News iOS app and the RedTag iOS app among others. I also gained a lot of sweet experience in project management here, where I led many scoping sessions for new projects going down the pipeline. I ❤ TribalScale!
While at SkyWatch, I predominantly worked on an [currently] unreleased web app related to sales in the GIS industry (AngularJS 1.x). I actively participated in the product design - from its conception to its building to its iterative feedback and saw through to its closed release to select clients. In addition to my work in development, I also designed the majority of the product's UI/UX and aided in customer acquisition. I ❤ SkyWatch!
While at RED Lab, I was a rapid prototyper for primarily mobile fintech solutions, especially solutions related to investments and insurance. Over the course of the term, I created seven prototypes, each that I saw from its very beginning to its end - some of which is being actively pushed to market! I worked primarily in Swift on both iOS and watchOS, and also dabbled in Ionic and web. I ❤ RED Lab!
Flare is a startup that I co-founded and have been working on since 2016. The product is a social media iOS app where users can create local, temporary, anonymous micro-communities that other users can chat in and even visit in real life. I do a bit of [almost] everything in the company, from the UI/UX/product design to iOS development (Swift) to daily operations. It's had its ups and downs, and the journey has never been easy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I ❤ Flare!
NASA Space Apps is an international hackathon hosted by NASA to promote development in space technologies. I was one of eight organizers for the event hosted in the Kitchener-Waterloo region, and I was responsible for the design of its posters and t-shirts, as well as managing the operations for the orders of the swag bags and t-shirts. I learned a ton about organization and operations doing this event. I ❤ NASA Space Apps!
Noflix was an iOS hackathon project done at Hack The North 2015 where users were allowed to choose a price limit and a location radius before an Uber would be ordered to them and take them to a random venue with those specs in mind. I did all the UI/UX work and the majority of the iOS app in Swift. We leveraged a bunch of APIs (Uber, Eventbrite, Yelp) to make this happen.
Bloated was a data visualization (web) hackathon project done at MHacks 8 that aimed to display how various datasets from the Bloomberg API affected world trade through time. I did all the UI/UX work (learning some d3 as I went) and developed the majority of the front end (vanilla js).
