Progressive Snapshot
I played a vital role in implementing and completing a new feature for Progressive Auto Insurance Company. I worked with a team of developers, designers, and project managers to deliver a complex new feature to the Progressive Snapshot app. I engineered code for both the iOS and Android versions of the app, developed solid code with a test-driven architecture, and worked with a team of about six developers worldwide. We were able to deliver on time to an extremely grateful client.

Sheet Music Direct
I managed a team of several Android and iOS developers to write a new Android app and update an existing iOS app. I guided them through architecture best practices and helped them deliver a solid product. They reported to me for guidance on code structure and coding standards. Sheet Music Direct is a native iOS and Android app that allows users to purchase and view the sheet music for over a million arrangements. Users can manage their sheet music and play through it using MIDI instruments with various settings and options.

BCBSMA MyBlue Mobile App
I implemented and completed a vital new feature for the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts MyBlue mobile app and developed and delivered a critical ID Card viewing feature. Using an existing codebase, I rapidly adapted and integrated a new feature that was critically needed. All code went through and passed a strenuous examination by the client's technology and security team, and I delivered the new feature on time to a happy client.

Openroad: Help in a Car Crash
I played a vital role in implementing and completing an exciting new app for TrueMotion Inc. I worked with a team of designers, data engineers, and project managers to architect several flows in the app. I provided input and guidance regarding UI design and user experience and delivered robust, clean, and well-tested code on time to a happy customer. We met a tight deadline and delivered a great product.

TrueMotion Family

A native Android and iOS app for monitoring family members' location and driving habits. I took over development for the Android app and assisted with developing the iOS app. I added several new features, cleaned out a laundry list of bugs, and we delivered a significantly improved product that went on to help the company achieve a very favorable buyout.

Invisalign Dentist App

An app designed for dentists and orthodontists to manage their patients' Invisalign Braces treatment. Healthcare providers can use the app to take and manage images of their patient's mouths and teeth to facilitate the procedure and order equipment. I led a small team of Android and iOS developers to deliver a well-architected and extensible MVP app which the client would then complete, relying on our best practices to guide their development.
