About Me

I'm a USC graduate with a masters in Computer Science. Now I build new features for the Airbnb iOS app, with a focus on applying new iOS technologies to grow bookings and improve performance. Projects have included Dynamic Type and the iMessage app. In my free time, I create awesome apps with ThnkDev. I enjoy swimming, hiking, and geocaching. You can follow me on Twitter, connect with me on LinkedIn, or fork me on GitHub. If you'd like to find out more about me, download my résumé.

Current Projects

I am currently developing the Mac apps QuickRes, which allows users to quickly switch between many resolution options, and Screenie, a screenshot manager that lets you search for text in your images. I also continuing to support Pearl, a mirror in your menubar.

Since 2016 I've been working on the Airbnb iOS app. Now I'm a Senior Software Engineer architecting new platforms to increase developer efficiency, and applying on-device machine learning to reduce latency.

Previous Experience

I received my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering from UC San Diego. As a research project with Professor Papadopoulos I developed a UDT based data transfer tool called Warp. In my Junior year I constructed a virtual reality rock climbing wall which combined an oculus dev kit, playstation move, and leap motion for an immersive mixed reality experience. I also developed the Apple award winning Keypress, initially made during HackSC.

I interned at Amazon Lab126, working on the Kindle Fire tablets in summer 2013. In the summer of 2014 I interned at Yelp developing new features for the Android app such as Your Next Review Awaits, a redesigned nearby page, and photo improvements as part of the mobile team. In the summer of 2015 I worked on an iOS app during an internship at Apple.

As co-founder of ThnkDev I created popular Mac and iOS apps including Snapped, a Snapchat client for Mac, and Fire, a Tinder photo optimizer.
