iOS, Node.js, Ruby/Rails - Full Stack Software Engineer
Most work is also available on my github profile. Click the screenies for more info.
I worked on the team at Good Eggs, helping developing the iOS app there. We wrote it in swift, using a Node.js backend we also wrote ourselves. I also worked on the web app, helping build the features for subscriptions and bundles.
I built an FPV (first person view) racing quadcopter. I really enjoy hardware projects, and this was one of my favorites. I'm great at crashing it too :)
mostly soldering and reading
Yesware acquired Attachments.me in late 2013, I led the team at yesware developing their iOS app. Yesware builds email tools for salespeople (email tracking, scheduled sending, no reply reminders, etc), and our SF team ported/created features from the existing webapp into the new iOS app.
(heroku free tier, may take a few seconds to load)I made this game one christmas for some of the kids in my family. The characters are all real kids. Graphics, sound, programming all handmade by yours truly.
(heroku free tier, may take a few seconds to load)Don't you hate it when websites take forever to load? Dreamt up the idea for this and made it in a weekend.
This is a chrome extension that can take any website with text and turn it into a 3d anaglyph. get your blue/red 3d glasses and check out twitter.
My 404 page is a little asteroids game of my cats flying through space, shooting pizzas. No, it doesn't really make sense.
This is an iOS app that helps more advances students practice japanese. Helps students with memorization, writing practice, stroke order and more. It's got flash cards, writing practice, voice coaching, and plenty more.
iOS, iPhone/iPad universal, objective-C
(Now defunct) Attachments.me was an attachment-centric way to use email. The iPhone app I architected had over 100,000 downloads, and I helped scale the company from 0 - 250,000 users.
This iOS app helps beginner japanese students learn their hiragana and katakana. I initially learned the japanese alphabets through mnenonic devices, and I tried to pass my tricks on.
I play a variety of instruments, most of them poorly. Here's a chiptunes album I've released:
Hey, I'm Dan. I'm a full stack engineer specializing in iOS. I've been writing iOS apps since 2011, and my apps have garnered hundred of thousands of downloads collectively. Projects I've worked on have been written about in Tech Crunch, Venture Beat and The Huffington Post among others. I've had the pleasure of working in both the ruby/rails and Node.js/MEAN tech stacks. In addition to the apps I've published, I also run and maintain several web projects. Please visit my projects page or my github profile below to see more.
A transplant originally from the Detroit area, I own 2 cats and live on the east side of the mission in San Francisco. I like to spend my time expanding my horizons and learning. I'm endlessly curious, and I've got a voracious appetite for new skills. I speak japanese fluently and enough spanish to get by. Cooking (and eating) has been a lifelong passion of mine, I spent several years of college working in kitchens and I continue to hone my craft now at home. Riding my bike is another personal joy. A self taught musician, I'm pretty comfortable with a guitar and a few other instruments. I've released (so far) one album that I wrote, produced and performed. Tinkering with hardware projects is another pastime of mine as well: have you ever made a DIY breathalyzer? There's a guide and an arduino sketch on my github page. I've built my own racing quadcopter too, but I've found that I'm much better at crashing it than flying it.
Don't hesitate to reach out if you'd like to chat or work together, cheers!
I like to take pictures and I also like photoshop.
