I am a builder. I grew up hacking together robots, working on cars, and writing code. I majored in Mechanical Engineering and minored in Computer Science, and have worked as a professional engineer in both fields.
These days I primarily work on mobile software. I am a bit more involved in the Android platform than iOS, but I have shipped products to customers on both platforms. My previous software experience was primarily embedded systems & desktop applications. I prefer working in the open source ecosystem and contribute back whenever possible.
My primary mechanical engineering interest is mechanical system design. I also have a strong interest in Design for Manufacturability and Lean Manufacturing.
I currently work for Gilt Groupe. I have previously worked for Lua Technologies, General Dynamics Electric Boat, and Bug Labs. The views on this blog do not represent the views of these companies.
