Software work

I am a generalist software engineer who can provide a broad variety of software design and implementation services. I have a strong focus on user experience, reliability, and maintainability.

I’ve worked across many different industries and disciplines with companies like Bloomberg, PlayStation, and Raspberry Pi.

Right now I’m interested in projects in interactive media and graphics/video industries such as live show visuals.
