Recent projects

  • Feed Importer For Micro.blog

    Micro Blog Feed Importer for WordPress is a simple plugin written in PHP. The code is open source on my GitHub repo where I develop and maintain the project. Micro Blog has a small but avid user base, and it has been fun to evolve this plugin as the platform and its users grow.

  • Vorto

    Vorto is the most complex, longest-running project I have ever worked on. It started as a part of my Master Thesis and morphed several times into various forms. Parts of the app are already on the iOS App Store. We are working hard to ship more pieces of the puzzle sometime before the end of the summer including a desktop app and a more robust mobile experience.

  • News Real

    This app has the most character out of all of the projects I have worked on lately. The name, graphics, user interface, and usage are a modern take on old-timey spy imagery. This app goes against that grain while still making good use of new native features such as split screens and inter-app communication.
