I’ve been creating digital media since 1990, including print, web, video, Flash interactive media & media players, and I’ve been a top Android designer / developer for the last six years.

I recently enjoyed a successful run with my company, cloud.tv. We're a Google Play Top Developer selected for Editor's Choice a few times. Our most popular Android app was HD Widgets, earning almost $2M to date with over 1.5M paid installs. It was ranked #1 paid widget app and reigned among Google Play's top ten overall paid apps for almost three years.

For fun I like DJing with friends, weekend hikes, and occasionally taking my car out on the track.

In a former life, I was known as Elemental.[/ultimate_heading][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1487235542091{margin-right: 10px !important;border-bottom-width: 1px !important;padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 60px !important;border-bottom-color: #e0e0e0 !important;border-bottom-style: solid !important;}"][vc_column width="1/3" css=".vc_custom_1487566286899{margin-right: 10px !important;}"][ultimate_heading main_heading_color="#f93973" sub_heading_color="#f93973" alignment="left" main_heading_font_family="font_family:Raleway|font_call:Raleway" sub_heading_font_family="font_family:Raleway|font_call:Raleway|variant:700" sub_heading_font_size="desktop:13px;" sub_heading_line_height="desktop:13px;" sub_heading_style="font-weight:700;"]OURS IS BETTER

What are the fundamentals? What are the most efficient steps to achieve them? And what little things can we add to make it more fun and easy-to-use than competing products?[/ultimate_heading][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/3" css=".vc_custom_1487566296130{margin-right: 10px !important;}"][ultimate_heading main_heading_color="#f93973" sub_heading_color="#f93973" alignment="left" main_heading_font_family="font_family:Raleway|font_call:Raleway" sub_heading_font_family="font_family:Raleway|font_call:Raleway|variant:700" sub_heading_font_size="desktop:13px;" sub_heading_line_height="desktop:13px;" sub_heading_style="font-weight:700;"]DESIGN IN CODE

This approach smooths out kinks in actual (rather than conceptual) layout and flow while allowing me to continuously develop the visual design organically.[/ultimate_heading][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/3"][ultimate_heading main_heading_color="#f93973" sub_heading_color="#f93973" alignment="left" main_heading_font_family="font_family:Raleway|font_call:Raleway" sub_heading_font_family="font_family:Raleway|font_call:Raleway|variant:700" sub_heading_font_size="desktop:13px;" sub_heading_line_height="desktop:13px;" sub_heading_style="font-weight:700;"]FAST AND FINISHED

We relieve coders of distracting design decisions, optimize UI code for uniformity and flexibility, and make a  product feel "finished". Ultimately, we save projects an incredible amount of time and resources while producing a superior product.[/ultimate_heading][/vc_column][/vc_row]
