I work at Quizlet as a Senior Android developer on the Mobile Infra team, working to improve the app and the development experience for all the Android teams.

Before that I worked at Pinterest as a Senior Android developer on the Core Experience team. Before that I was a Senior Android developer at Udemy, responsible for the Android app development and leading the development of the Android TV prototype.

I began working as a C# developer 10 years ago. I became a mobile developer 4 years ago, and released many Windows and Windows Phone apps. After moving to San Francisco in 2013, I worked for Slack on the Windows Phone app.
