Graduate of Computer Science department at the University of British Columbia, I began career as application and low-level developer for Mac OS platforms. Having worked through the transition into the current era of OS X-based Apple platforms, I've had experience with native app development in Cocoa / Objective-C since the early 2000s. I've been an iOS developer since the launch of the first iPhone SDK in 2008, and full-time Swift coder for over 1 year.
