I love the work I do as an Android Developer. I enjoy learning about new things, and applying them to my work. You can keep up to date on the things I’ve been working on by subscribing to my newsletter 📬.
You can often find me at conferences exchanging information with others as a speaker 🎤. Come say hello if you spot me at one!
In addition to speaking at conferences, I also write for Ray Wenderlich ✏️ in my spare time. I’m a part of their Resident Author team, helping to educate people in Android and Kotlin. As part of my work there, I co-authored the book Android Test-Driven Development by Tutorials.
While studying at Hope College, I also started getting involved in dance technology and dance production 🎭. I had a couple projects that worked together with a dancer and an Xbox Kinect, and did a significant amount of lighting design. Ask me about them, I love talking about it!
When I’m not out doing these things, you can find me in my home base of Chicago 🏙️ with my fiance, Tyler. In my spare time, I enjoy playing board games with friends, or curled up at home with a good book, my cat, Peter Pan 😻, and hedgehog, Khoshekh 🦔.
