Pelipost | Photos to Prison
Do you have an incarcerated loved one? Pelipost makes it easier than ever to stay connected. Share your special moments by sending beautiful, full-color 4x6 photos directly from your smartphone. Pelipost ships directly to your loved one in any city, state, or federal correctional facility in the USA.

This app came to us full of bugs and originated from a CS Soft Solutions client who was unhappy with their previous developers. By fixing almost everything and adding substantial improvements, I got this iOS Swift app to work properly. The client was fantastic to work with thanks to the effort he put in and the app is extremely popular now.

The Android app was built by another developer.

Whodunnit: Murder Mystery Game
Whodunnit is the easiest way to host your very own murder mystery dinner game! Take the work out of running a murder mystery dinner party with easy invites, character question screens, profiles, costume suggestions, and plenty of murder mystery stories in a variety of fun settings.

This is my personal app that's available for both iOS and Android.

This app already has more than 50,000 users and made more than US$12,000 so far. The idea and content belong to Javier Negrete and we are partners in this project. I made this application completely from scratch.

Tech Stack:
The iOS app was built in Swift and we used React Native for the Android version. We used PHP and SQLite for the back end.

Android App:

Jooay connects children and youth with disabilities to leisure activities with a simple tap and allows parents, health care providers, physical education teachers, and community organizations to locate and engage in adapted and inclusive leisure activities in their local community! The app is free and currently lists numerous activities in all ten provinces across Canada.

For a client, I worked on this project within Tactica Interactive. It came to me already built, and we were tasked to make changes. Soon after, they discovered that they liked my work, so I continued to make improvements, build new features based on locations, and develop the back end.

Tech Stack:
The front end was built with iOS Swift and the back end with Node.js and MongoDB.

Masters of Mindfulness
This app was created by Monica Ortiz, the CEO of The Exceptional Life Institute and creator of the Complete Mindfulness Toolkit. A recognized leader in the mindfulness world and recipient of the 2020 Top 100 Leaders in Healthcare award. Monica has distilled her experience from over 20 years of mindfulness work and speaking at TEDx, Google, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, and more into developing the world's first complete mindfulness app that will help you think, feel, and live better.

This was a part-time freelance project where I worked with Monica and her team, Andrew and Sophia (a great team to work with). I built this app from scratch—this covered everything to do with development, including the back end, while Andrew provided the app designs.

Tech Stack:
The app was built for both native iOS and Android. The front end was built with iOS Swift and Android Java. The back end was made with PHP with a SQL database and hosted on AWS.

Hope Pregnancy App

This platform acts as a gateway into a place where you can access emotional health check-ins and supports to be emotionally healthy during your pregnancy and up to one year after your baby is born. You can register at any time up until the birth of your child. You can also enter the web app on any device using your internet browser.

This app was built while working with Tactica Interactive. The application carries extremely sensitive data so many security measures were adopted.

Tech Stack:
I used React for the front end and Ruby on Rails on the back end.

SkipTheDishes | Deliver and Earn
The courier app is your tool to accept offers, manage your schedule, and start delivering to hungry customers today.

I've worked in the courier team since I joined SkipTheDishes and am currently working as a senior developer, implementing most of the fixes.
