What I do

  • Development for mobile, desktop, and the web using Swift, Kotlin, Rust, and Elixir.
  • Cross-platform solutions with Kotlin Multiplatform and Tauri.
  • Web development and web experiences using JavaScript, CSS, HTML, and React or Vue... WCAG.
  • It's hard to separate DevOps from development. I like reproducible deployments and love IaC tools or managing my own infrastructure using Docker and Ansible. I have experience using k8s as well, although I try to avoid it.

I love open source and take every opportunity to contribute to tools and projects I like or find useful. I also create and maintain a couple of my own. For example, TootSDK, a Swift library for Mastodon and the fediverse or SwiftyFlags, a list of known Swift compiler flags. Also:

Last but not least, there are all kinds of tiny plugins and libraries that I've made over the years.

Although scattered across the internet, one can still find JSON Escape Unescape: a Nova extension to help work with JSON on iOS or Top Sites Filters: a tiny Firefox extension to help keep certain URLs out of history, Airstrip: Adobe XD extension adding a set of tools to export app icon assets for Apple platforms.
