Applications and skills
Build & ship iOS software
The heart of my knowledge stems from the iOS ecosystem. I work fluently on Xcode, iTunes Connect, iOS Frameworks, & the iTunes App Store. I can also read/write code in Swift/Objective-C.
Session-based user analytics
Managing stakeholders is almost impossible without data. I trust mixpanel to deliver, not only accurate data from users but, a clean experience when using tools like surveys or user research methods.
User Experience Design
I enjoy using Sketch for all of my designing needs. Everything from UX flows, to high fidelity graphics, to even brainstorming sessions. Once I have gotten research from hand sketches, I translate the assets to digital via Sketch.
